The Mayor and the Council are working together to pass a budget, and the decisions made this year will have a major impact on the future of the District. DC Action staff and coalition members are advocating to invest more in education, and protect programs that provide health and economic lifelines to families, which is particularly vital during the COVID-19 pandemic. As we do so, we are calling on policy makers to ensure racial equity is at the core of each and every one of their funding decisions.
