On Community-Led Development

Tonight brings the launch of a DC community response the proposed WalMart development in Ward Four. Ward Four Thrives is neighbors, business owners, and allies committed to community-led development in our neighborhoods. Together we will work to stop Wal Mart from moving in. There are alternatives, and we will work with the city to find one that will bring living wage jobs, responsible development, and just business practices to our neighborhood. Let's face it; Wal Mart does not care about our community, and we can do better.
