Tell The DC Council To End Poverty In The U.S. Capital

This petition had 95 supporters

Due to the lingering effects of the Great Recession, poverty and homelessness are on the rise in our nation's capital. The U.S. has long been seen as the land of opportunity and its capital as a beacon of hope. It stands to reason that Washington, DC would serve as an example for cities around the world as to how to effectively combat poverty and homelessness. However, local politicians have made only a few failed attempts at combatting either issue and have actually aided gentrification in the city.
