We stand in opposition to the Evictions with Dignity Act. We’d like you to ask your Councilmember to do the same when the legislation comes up for a vote on July 10, 2018.

For the last 22 years, I have had the privilege of serving as CEO at Bread for the City, a nonprofit that provides food, clothing, medical care, and legal and social assistance to DC residents living with low-income. Each year, my staff and I talk to each other, our supporters, and policy makers about how we can do this work better. While that’s an important question, I also believe we fail to ask a question more important: how do we get to a point where we don’t have to do the work at all?
Although DC received a healthy serving of rain last Thursday, a team of experienced and beginner gardeners showed up in Bread for the City’s SE Center rooftop garden to help get the garden in shape!
Yesterday was a big day for Bread for the City. A BIG ONE. Yesterday, we symbolically broke ground at 1710 Good Hope Road, SE, the future home of our new service center east of the Anacostia River. This day was a long time coming, and was full of excitement, love, and hope.
