Click here for a few more photos from today's protest against Central Union Mission's proposed move to 3510 Georgia Avenue. The Washington Post was there as well by the way.
According to flyers that were handed out, Councilmember Jim Graham is holding a meeting next week for those concerned about this issue:
Thursday, May 18th, 6:30pm
Park View ES, 3560 Warder Street
DCRA will explain the required permits for a new shelter, and residents will each be allowed three-minute comments. Call 202-724-8198 to sign up to speak.
Resident Adam Wasch had a gathering nearby at Temperance Hall, for those not necessarily against the shelter. His flyer said concerns about property values, crime, etc. were "legitimate" yet urged residents to "have an open mind and to work with the Mission to address concerns, not to block a much-needed service for our city's needy."
Email Adam for more information about his effort.
