Support Ongoing Fights for Community Control of Public Property in DC

The trial may be over, but the fight is still on. Franklin School is one among many public properties that Mayor Gray and the DC government are misusing or trying to sell off to private developers. Now, more than ever, it's clear that we can't trust politicians to manage our public resources. We need to organize and take control of what rightfully belongs to the people of DC in order to meet communities' needs.

Lot 42 in the Shaw neighborhood was promised for affordable housing and is now on the auction block for market rate (not remotely-affordable) condo development. Click here to learn more and sign the petition.

And the city is currently trying to use the vacant Crummell School in Ivy City as a parking lot for Bolt Bus, against the wishes of Ivy City residents to use it as an adult education and recreation center. Click here to learn more and sign the petition.
