III) Organize & Fight Back!
i) DEFEND THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AND FUTURE LAND USE MAP
DC for Reasonable Development, a citywide network of groups and residents who care about planning in the District of Columbia, asks you to join us in defending the DC Comprehensive Plan. The developer-class working by and through DC “planners” want to dismantle our most progressive planning document in the city.
Be at the upcoming meetings to defend the development of an inclusive city that is building truly affordable housing >> http://planning.dc.gov/page/plandc-amending-dc-comprehensive-plan
ii) MARTIN LUTHER KING LIBRARY
Our central public library is being renovated, your voices needed, http://www.dclibrary.org/mlkfuture
Be at an upcoming meeting and get your ANC’s and civics involved to express your concerns, critique, and affirmation of all or parts of the renovation plans, here are the plans dated August 2016, http://www.slideshare.net/DCPublicLibrary/slide-show-for-website-8-2016
–> ALSO, join the Martin Luther King Memorial Library Friends at their Annual Meeting and Election on Wednesday October 26 at 6:30 pm in Room A-5 of the Martin Luther King Jr Memorial Library.
Guest Speaker: Author and Consumer Activist Ralph Nader will speak about his new book Breaking Through Power. The MLK Library Friends will be selling books ($13.95 paperback) and Mr. Nader will be pleased to autograph copies.
The #Racist planning and unjust behavior seems to be at an all time high in the District in 2016.
