DC Government and Developers: We Want TRULY Affordable Housing for Parcel 42

    1. Petition by

      ONE DC

Dear friends and allies,

Today, July 26th, developers submit proposals to the city government to develop the controversial Parcel 42 (at 7th St. and Rhode Island Ave. NW). While this land was promised as affordable housing for families making less than $50,000/yr., the Mayor's Office is moving forward with proposals to develop luxury housing instead.

Sign this petition today to send a message directly to the city officials responsible and the developers bidding on Parcel 42. Let them know that we will hold them accountable to the promise of 100% affordable housing in DC, for Parcel 42 and beyond.  

Now is the time to let developers and city officials know the community is mobilized, watching, and demanding our voices be heard and respected concerning the development of public land in our own communities.  We are demanding that development on Parcel 42 be halted until the resources and community involvement needed to develop 100% low cost affordable housing is realized.

Together, we will be heard!
