SPECIAL INVITATION: Join DCEN and the Living Wages Healthy Communities Coalition to Honor Martin Luther King Jr. at the Annual Peace WalK!
DC Environmental Network:
The DC Environmental Network (DCEN) is working with the Living Wages Healthy Communities Coalition to develop a Community Benefits Agreement with Walmart. Walmart is proposing developing 2-4 new stores in Washington, DC. We are hoping our efforts in coordination with this Living Wages Healthy Communities Coalition will result in development that not only protects but enhances the quality of our local environment.
We believe being part of this broad coalition is a good model for creating sustainable communities. (This model was successfully used to protect environmental, housing and job standards for all new developments along the Anacostia River a few years back.)
We are hoping our efforts here will influence how the District approaches growth and development throughout the city. We invite the environmental community to be part of our coordinated efforts.
In the meantime come join us on Monday, January 17th at 9:00 AM at Anacostia Metro Station and look for the Respect DC banner. Environmental, labor, religious and other community focused organizations and individuals will march together to honor Martin Luther King Jr. and urge Walmart to respect District communities and help create developments that make sense and don't hurt our fragile urban environment.
WHAT: MLK Peace Walk with the Living Wages Healthy Communities Coalition
DATE & TIME: Monday, January 17th at 9:AM
PLACE: We will meet at the Anacostia Metro Station. Our banner will be displayed right outside the main entrance.
RSVP: Let me know you are coming! RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Apologies for the late notice. I look forward to seeing some of you on Monday!
