A Moment or A Movement? Why Black Lives Matter on the Path to Equitable Development in Washington, DC

Movement building is the focus of the third annual conference on equitable development in

Washington, DC co-sponsored by ONE DC and The George Washington University.  Bringing together residents from all parts of the DC area, organizers, students, developers, elected officials and all who are concerned with sustainable, equitable development, this conference will build on the ongoing efforts to create more democratic and just communities in Washington, DC.  This conference will feature a diverse panel and emphasize audience interaction, engaging questions from attendees, and stimulate compelling conversation for movement building and grassroots advocacy.  The day will also include a series of DC Study Tours in the afternoon, immersing attendees in various equitable movements. The Study Tours will travel throughout the District, exploring firsthand the ways in which local organizers are changing the face of development and advocating for equitable growth within their communities.  These tours revolve around the central ideas of ONE DC, including the right to housing, the right to income, and anti-gentrification and acceptable community growth movements.
