Empower DC’S People’s Property Campaign has united District residents to save public property – schools, libraries, parks and other public spaces – for public use, not private profit. Campaign members drafted Bill 17-0527 requiring significant public input and consideration of public uses and needs when developing public property. The Bill awaits approval by the City Council.

Take Back the Land fought against gentrification by seizing public land and building a shantytown, housing over 150 otherwise homeless people. They now identify foreclosed homes and move families in- without permission from the government or the bank. Come find out how you can help save your community at this important forum.

I don’t approve of squatting, but I do support Bill 17-0527
