Year of the Anacostia Candidates Forum

05/31/2018 to 05/31/2018

Anacostia High School, 1601 16th Street, SE, Washington, DC 20019

2018 has been declared the “Year of the Anacostia” and the improvement of the Anacostia River corridor is increasingly covered in the news. The forum is a chance for candidates to discuss their platform as it relates to the intersection of environmental restoration and community development. Denise Rolark Barnes, publisher of The Washington Informer, and Andrew Lightman, managing editor of Capital Community News, will moderate. Anacostia High School students will conduct a straw poll at the end of the forum. APACC has invited all candidates for At-large and Council Chair seats per Board of Elections: Anita Bonds, Marcus Goodwin, Denise Hicks, Jeremiah Lowery, Ed Lazere, Phil Mendelson, David Schwartzman. The increasing interest in the Anacostia River, Anacostia Park, and neighborhoods east of the river present opportunities and challenges to current residents. Many residents feel disconnected or marginalized from policy making and the economic boom other parts of the city have experienced. This forum brings these residents together with candidates to talk about important Anacostia-related subjects. More information and to RSVP:
