ONE DC invites you to engage with us in a conversation and community learning process about displacement and resistance in DC. We will show you the physical side of gentrification in the Shaw neighborhood and discuss its effects on the community, along with stories of how ONE DC organizes with residents to stand up for community-led, equitable development. Participants will have the opportunity to raise and discuss questions together, as well as tie learned experience to the Shaw story and context. We will explore the interconnectedness of the right to housing, the right to income, and the right to wellness.
Participants will walk a little less than 1 mile total. Depending on questions and reflections, tour lasts about 90 minutes. For this tour, we are requesting a free-will donation on a sliding scale of $10 to $25. You can bring a cash or check on the day of the tour or make a donation by clicking here. This contribution goes toward supporting the work of ONE DC, including resident-led tenant organizing, the Black Workers Center, and the People's Platform.
