WIN: Advocate for a Public Health Approach to Safety

Tue 5/2 | 6-7:30 pm, Metropolitan AME church, 1518 M St NW
Join Washington Interfaith Network (WIN) leaders in Ward 2 on Tuesday, May 2, 6:00 pm-7:30 pm, for a Budget Season Public Safety Action with Councilmember Brooke Pinto, Chair – Committee on the Judiciary & Public Safety. Come to the historic Metropolitan AME church downtown at 1518 M St NW.

Public Safety

Asking elected officials to work with WIN and ally organizations to:

  • Increase the number of “violence interrupters,” dispatch mental health providers in response to 911 calls involving people in crisis,
  • Invest in evidence-based, culturally competent behavioral health and wellness services and a holistic public health approach to school safety that is relational, racially just, restorative, trauma-responsive, and trauma-informed, including additional school counselors and clinicians.

Housing

Downtown redevelopment should include affordable housing. WIN believes that if individuals work and serve the District’s residents, they should be able to afford to live in the District.
