Racial and economic justice was a challenge for DC before Covid-19, and the pandemic is creating unprecedented and growing need. How can the District address shortfalls and equity at once? DC Council candidates join “Community Under Covid” this week to share their visions: Ed Lazere, candidate for At-Large (Ind) seat is confirmed. Invited/scheduling: Anthony Lorenzo Green, for Ward 7 (Dem) seat; Jordan Grossman, for Ward 2 (Dem); and Janeese Lewis George, for Ward 4 (Dem).

LIVE conversation, Wed, May 6 at 11 a.m. Eastern. Listen via audio streaming or Facebook Live or check back for recording.

We Act Radio is working to bring additional voices to “Community Under Covid,” as the budget is transmitted to the Council on May 12 and the budget schedule progresses. Stay tuned — via Facebook, Twitter, or this blog — for further announcements. See footer to subscribe for updates.

Also coming soon: east of the river businesses under Covid, more on “Reopen DC,” update on shelters….
