Make DC an Anti-Poverty City

To work towards making Washington, D.C. an anti-poverty city as a council member, I would need to implement a comprehensive set of policies and initiatives aimed at addressing the root causes of poverty and improving the well-being of all residents.

Living Wage Legislation

Advocate for and support policies that establish a living wage, ensuring that all workers earn enough to cover basic living expenses.

Affordable Housing

Prioritize affordable housing initiatives to reduce homelessness and provide stable housing for low-income individuals and families.

Education and Workforce Development

Invest in education and workforce development programs to equip residents with the skills and knowledge needed to secure higher-paying jobs.

Support Green New Deal Act

Establishes a new agency, the office of social housing developments, responsible for the construction, maintenance, and growth of district-owned, mixed-income, affordable housing.

Childcare Support

Expand affordable childcare options for working parents, making it easier for them to maintain employment.

Food Security

Address food insecurity by supporting food banks, affordable grocery stores in underserved areas.

Criminal Justice Reform

Advocate for criminal justice reform to reduce incarceration rates and provide rehabilitation and support services for individuals reentering society.

Small Business Support

Promote small business development and entrepreneurship, which can lead to job creation and economic growth in underserved communities.

Financial Literacy Programs

Implement financial literacy programs to empower residents with the knowledge and skills to manage their finances effectively.

Mental Health Services

Expand access to mental health services, reducing the stigma around seeking help and addressing mental health challenges that can contribute to poverty.

Community Revitalization

Invest in community revitalization projects that improve infrastructure, create jobs, and enhance the overall quality of life in impoverished neighborhoods.
To realize the objective of transforming D.C. into a city that combats poverty, it will necessitate unwavering determination, extensive cooperation, and a sustained dedication to enhancing the economic prosperity and overall quality of life for every resident, with special attention to those in marginalized communities.
