Ward 5 Councilmember Kenyan McDuffie is hosting a meeting in a response to a series of high profile and brazen crimes on 12th Street in Brookland, which prompted to us to start an online petition for increased police presence. Many thanks to the over 300 folks who signed, but now we need to follow through and demand a real action plan to keep our neighborhood safe. The meeting will also give the public a chance to meet new District 5 Commander Dierdre N. Porter (you can read her bio here). The meeting will take place on Tuesday February 11th at 6:00 pm at the Turkey Thicket gym. We strongly encourage everyone to come out.
