From an email:

“No matter where you live in DC, Tuesday’s Community Public Forum on Criminal Justice will be interesting and informative. Participation from the US Attorney’s Office, along with several community leaders. We will discuss theft-from-auto, perhaps the most prevalent crime in DC, and a specific case of a belligerent, mentally ill, drug-addicted squatter who terrorized a Columbia Heights neighborhood for months before the matter was resolved due to pressure from the community.

Let’s keep the conversation going! Come talk about solving chronic public safety problems in our neighborhoods. The panelists will speak briefly, then we’ll have small-group discussions where we can all have our say and raise our issues. Please come, and bring your neighbors. Hot apple cider and our usual cookies, chips, hummus, veggies, cheese, crackers, etc. will be served.
