Height Library in Northeast D.C. for a frank conversation about our shared responsibilities as a community and how our response reflects our values.

Guests

  • Nkechi Feaster Affordable Housing Advocate
  • Robert Warren Director, People For Fairness Coalition
  • Laura Zeilinger Director, D.C. Department of Human Services
