Inside an 800-square-foot shop, D.C.-based social entrepreneur Ahmad Ashkar is using his Mom's falafel recipe to raise money for refugees.
Three years ago, 8-year-old Relisha Rudd disappeared from D.C. General, the city’s largest family homeless shelter. She was last seen in March, 2014, with a shelter janitor, Kahlil Tatum, who was later found dead and presumed to be her kidnapper. In the months that followed, D.C.’s Metropolitan Police Department led an investigation into her disappearance, which stirred debate on whom to blame, but uncovered no sign of the missing child. We examine what Relisha’s case revealed about D.C.’s safety nets and how they affect the city’s most vulnerable residents.
