The DC Center has been proudly serving as the anchor for the Metro DC LGBT community for 10 years. We provide services and programs that are on par with any other world-class city yet unlike other major cities we still don't have a permanent place to call home.
In the past four years alone we've moved three times. Next year our lease is up and we'll be moving yet again. Our main focus should be on serving you better but unfortunately we've been forced to put in countless time and resources into finding us a new home every few years.
Not too long ago we had funding set aside by the city to help us with a down payment for a building. However like many other LGBT non-profits our budget was slashed and we were back to square one.
But there's hope!
Just last month a bid came out for premium storefront space at the Reeves Municipal Building. It's situated in the heart of our "Gayborhood", just a block from where we currently reside and the lease is long-term. It's absolutely perfect for the DC Center and we want to claim this as a permanent home.
We need YOU to sign this petition and send it to everyone you know to show the city of DC that the DC center should have a permanent home and that the Reeves Municipal Building is the right place for it.
Thank you so much for your support!
