We are asking you to take action TODAY to stop Mayor Bowser from knocking down a building that we know contained lead and asbestos until all the families living at DC General have moved out.
Legal Clinic attorney Amber Harding recaps the latest on emergency legislation introduced regarding plans to shutter DC General, just before DC Council entered summer recess.
We support the closure of DC General, but only if it is done in a way that improves the conditions that families live in and ensures that there is enough shelter for all who need it.
