The Situation in DC General’s shelter is deplorable! There are infestations of mold and rats. Available funds are not being used for repairs. Residents have been given moldy food. In a complex with a methadone clinic and a jail, the hundreds of children at DC General have no safe place to play. Relisha Rudd was abducted from the shelter earlier this year.
When taking action and organizing for better living conditions, shelter residents have faced intimidation, including violations of their right to assemble. This is unacceptable!
Respect, and fair treatment is a human right, for all!
Support shelter residents in their struggle for housing, security, first amendment rights, and humane living conditions.
The rally is organized by shelter residents and the Washington Interfaith Network. The Peace House supports this rally as a show of solidarity with the residents, and all the people who struggle for a fair and just world.
