On Thursday, March 7, more than 125 DC residents met at the Community Action Group's Hal J Gordon Building for "Addressing Inequality in DC," a forum discussion about how to move the needle in the DC public school system. Co-sponsored by the DC Democratic State Committee and the Ward 6 Democrats, the forum addressed issues our students, parents, and entire school system face in treating all our students equitably and in fairly and appropriately providing the services they need. We thank the many volunteers who stepped up on short notice to make the evening a success.
At the DC DSC's monthly meeting, state committee members discussed moving the date of the 2020 DC primary election up two weeks to June 2, 2020 to raise awareness of the DC Statehood movement and to increase the impact of the District's vote. This recommendation will shortly be forwarded to the DC city council for a final decision.
