What is going on with this once-vibrant community organization in Shaw? Their web site hasn't been edited in over a year, their tweets stopped over a month ago, staffing is very low, their projects and interests seem all over the place and news about them is spotty, and they're not keeping us informed about fate of Parcel 42. When did they last win something concrete? I hope they revive.

I agree in that sharing news with the public is erratic. Must one be an active member inside to know what they're accomplishing? I look at their web site and I see this range of diverse topics. Schools, coops, political training, employment, public housing, private housing, Shaw, Barry Farms, Ivy City, wellness, food, youth organizing, gentrification history, and more. All being worked on successfully by a small organization, mostly volunteer? They had promised to tell us how many new members gained per month. But no numbers now for four mos. ONE DC stretched too thin?
