RACE and POLITICS in DC -- an honest dialogue among diverse groups.  An open discussion about what is being whispered in private -- "Race Based Voting"

Issues to be discussed:

  • To what extent does "race based voting" exist?
  • What is its origin? -- impact of gentrification; reaction to prosecution of Councilmembers


What can be done:

  • to promote a better quality of life for all residents  
  • to accept personal responsibility
  • to develop community education speakers and meetings
  • to encourage the Mayor to promote a “one city” that celebrates diversity
