LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: D.C.’s Neighborhoods, Children Matter

Stacy! I thank you! We thank you!

We have worked so hard over the years and are giving it all we got to root and advance healthy human development and economic freedom in some of the most marginalized areas, here in D.C.!

This is hard work and heart work! So … for you and The Washington Informer to provide us with a piece like this [“Kenilworth-Parkside: A Promise and the Rise of a Neighborhood,” by Stacy Brown in the April 27 edition], I simply don’t have the words! From my heart … I thank you! We thank you! I look forward to sharing so much more in the future as the community continues to rise and deliver on the promises made to their children and their children’s children.

I anxiously await our continued conversation! Copying our board Chair Ed Fisher [and] Vice Chair Dr. Wendell Hall, who are playing a pivotal role in leading DC Promise towards our broader and brighter destiny with the clear understanding that D.C.’s children matter! Our families matter! Our community matters! So … we press ever onward! #PROMISEONWARD

Much love! Much gratitude! Much peace!

Mary Brown
Executive Director, DC Promise Neighborhood Initiative

WI Gives Light to Voiceless

It is imperative that The Washington Informer continues to publish stories of community uplift. Crippling narratives persist in mainstream newspapers, but each week I can rely on The Informer to provide an alternative perspective on how black communities in Washington, D.C., remain vigilant in light of so many changes in the city. As swift practices of gentrification move through our city, The Informer remains committed to telling our stories. Our voices must continue to be heard. So, thank you for being a beacon of hope, and a call to action in our community. Thank you for telling our stories.
