This week we’ll focus on Cultural Health.
Cultural Health in Ward 5 means bridging generations and connecting our communities. It means expanding networks of support and ensuring neighbors who have long lived here can stay here. Cultural Health is about neighbors saying "hello" and helping each other. It is about us honoring the past while building the future together. That's why Zachary has put forth bold policy proposals to help preserve Ward 5's Cultural Health and ensure all residents can live and thrive in our Ward 5. Together, we can...
Increase the amount of affordable housing in the District by leveraging city-owned land and purchasing additional property
Establish a tax credit for Native Washingtonians born before 2005 and living in the District to incentivize more of our neighbors to stay and thrive
Launch an inter-agency effort to combat discriminatory housing practices, like lowball appraisals and offers, which serve as barriers for Black and Brown families building sufficient wealth
That’s what we’re building together on this campaign. It’s why we’re humbled by and so grateful for your support. When we win this election and send Zachary to the Council, it will be because this incredible grassroots movement came together and MADE it happen. — Team Zachary
