We explore the history of gatherings and protests on the Mall, including how the space was re-designed at the turn 20th century expressly to accommodate large crowds.
Jullette Saussy was hired by D.C. government less than a year ago to oversee reforms in the city’s troubled fire and emergency medical services department. Those calls for reform came in the wake of several controversies, including the death of a local man who suffered a heart attack across the street from a fire station. But Saussy announced plans this week to resign from the post, claiming that her proposals were blocked and that the department’s failure to change its approach to medical services was putting lives in danger. Kojo chats with Saussy about her decision to quit – and what she believes is at stake in the city’s fire and emergency medical services department.
