LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Housing Crisis Hits Home

The article on the cover of last week’s paper “Affordable Housing Crisis Plagues D.C. Residents,” by Jonathan Franklin really spoke to me because I, too, feel priced out of my neighborhood and city. It’s a shame that over 47,000 Washingtonians are on the DC Housing Authority waiting list! It doesn’t even seem like a problem that can or will be fixed. Where are these people going to stay? Where is the housing going to come from? I appreciate this being covered because we can’t let this issue die.

App Shines Light on Black Moms’ Needs

I was really happy to see the story about the new app “Irth” that will help women of color who are moms or expecting. I personally feel that this is a piece of technology that us Black women have been missing. We all know that Black people are treated harsher than Whites in the health care industry and Black women are not the exception. This app is on time with all of the studies and even people like Serena Williams, whose famous and rich, but still not treated with dignity while giving birth. I am proud of the Black women who are bringing this to the forefront. We need to know the real deal about doctors and hospitals from trusted sources.
