Racial Equity and the Anacostia River

October 13 | 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
DC
Kingman Island, 575 Oklahoma Ave NE
Washington,DC20002United States
+ Google Map

The Anacostia River has long been a dividing line of racial inequity in DC. In the past few years, the city has invested heavily in cleaning up the river and bringing development to its shores, but those who have lived along the banks of the river and suffered its environmental effects are being pushed out, just as the river is finally getting clean. JUFJ has joined a coalition of local organizations working to require the DC government to assess whether or not its action help repair racial inequities. Environmental racism should not be a policy — or the side effect of a policy — of our government. Come learn about the fight to pass real policy change to stop environmental racism in DC. After a learning session, we will put our words into action with a community clean up of the Anacostia River.
