April 2 | 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Foundry United Methodist Church, 1500 16th St NW
Washington, DC 20036 United States

The Anacostia River—one of the most polluted rivers in the US for decades—has long been the dividing line of income inequality in DC. In the past few years, the city has invested heavily in cleaning up the river, bringing development to its shores – in fact, the banks of the Anacostia are currently DC’s fastest-growing area. But as housing prices increase, 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. Learn about how environmental gentrification and the affordable housing crisis are affecting our neighbors living on the banks of DC’s iconic river.
