District Dialogues - Kenyan McDuffie

Capitol Hill Village, with the Hill East Civic Association, announce this special event. District of Columbia At-Large Councilmember Kenyan McDuffie has served on the City Council for 11 years, 10 of those years representing Ward 5. His Council colleagues have elected him Chairman Pro Tempore, a role where he acts as the Chairman when the Chairman is absent. Councilmember McDuffie currently chairs the Committee on Business and Economic Development.

Mr. McDuffie, according to the Washington Post, “… has long made racial equity a centerpiece of his policymaking, with previous successful legislative efforts to create a local “baby bonds” program for low-income infants and establish the city’s Office of Racial Equity, including a partner office in the D.C. Council that examines proposed legislation through an equity lens.

Most recently he has introduced and held hearings on “The Reparations Foundation Fund and Task Force Establishment Act of 2023.” This is an important contemporary issue and we hope you'll join us to learn about reparations efforts more generally, and Councilmember McDuffie's specific proposal.
Monday, September 25, 2023, 7:30 PM until 8:30 PM Eastern Time (US & Canada) (UTC-05:00)
