January Commissioner Announcements (including vaccine updates)

ANC2F welcomed its newly-elected commission this Wed! Against a backdrop of alarming developments, the work of the commission to uphold public safety, economic recovery, and well-being of our diverse community for ALL of its residents could not be more important than it is today.

Due to the extenuating circumstances, the commission opted to share January announcements via e-mail this month. Take a look at important updates on the COVID vaccine, streetlight retrofitting (with WiFi!), and the DC Strings camp here: https://mailchi.mp/99aa70704702/kfgui3j3pg-4719635

I AM OUTRAGED! WHAT IS BEING DONE ABOUT THIS BLATANT DEMONSTRATION OF HATE?!

As a U.S. citizen, resident of DC, and the Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner for Single Member District 2F08, where historic Asbury United Methodist Church resides, I am outraged that in addition to Asbury, my home church, historic Metropolitan AME Church, had BLACK LIVES MATTER signs desecrated by White Supremacist/Proud Boys/tRUMP supporters during this past weekend's rants and protests.

I'd like to know why individuals were not rounded up and arrested and allowed to roam the city and DESTROY PROPERTY! The Reverend Doctor Ianther Marie Mills noted it was ‘Reminiscent Of Cross Burnings’ (https://www.fox5dc.com/news/maga-protesters-damage-historic-black-church-in-dc). How can the police say "possible" HATE CRIME? If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, IT IS A DUCK!!!! https://www.nbcwashington.com/news/protesters-rip-set-fire-to-blm-signs-at-two-dc-churches-organizers-respond/2507057/

I would like an explanation of what is happening to bring these individuals to justice and why the DC MPD allowed this to happen!!!!!

GET OUT THE VOTE | VOTER REGISTRATION DRIVE at the Wah Luck House (outside of ANC 2F, but part of ANC 2F outreach to seniors). Commissioners Fanning and Ferebee want to thank everyone for their efforts toward a successful VOTER REGISTRATION DRIVE this afternoon. Commissioner Ferebee collected 22 Voter Registration Forms 🤣! This was a special event to share with elders from another culture. THEIR VOICES WILL BE HEARD!

1) Melissa Alexander | DC Board of Elections: Thank you for providing direction as well as the clipboards, pens, and Voter Registration Forms (Chinese & English).

2) Fan Zhang (and Mr. Chin): Wah Luck House | I appreciate all of your work to assist ANC 2F in pulling this together. It was great to see all of the residents.

3) Mayor's Office on Asian & Pacific Islander Affairs: We can't thank you enough, Vanessa and Tuo, for helping Commissioner Ferebee say "Hello Everyone" in your language, and translating and assisting the residents. ANC 2F appreciates being able to work with MOAPIA on this important project.

4) John Fanning: ANC 2F Chair | Thanks so much for your support and the snacks 😁.

5) Saul Boulanger: Ward 2 DC Dems Volunteer | Thanks so much for coming out | your presence was very much appreciated.

ANC 2F | GET OUT THE VOTE! Commissioner Janice Ferebee coordinated a series of drives to get senior residents registered at the 5 DCHA properties in Ward 2. Dropped off 53 VOTER REGISTRATION FORMS today at the DC Board of Elections from the drives at Claridge Towers (2F07) and Judiciary House (2C02). We will be at Horizon House (2F08) and The James Apartments (2F03) next week, and picking up from St. Mary’s Court later (2A05) in September. We have also added the Wah Luck House (2C01) in Chinatown and will be hosting a drive at the end of September, in partnership with the Mayor’s Office on Asian & Pacific Islander Affairs, with Mandarin and Cantonese translators. It’s been a privilege to serve these important senior populations | supporting them in exercising their right to vote. We want to thank the DC BOE, the MOAPIA, DCHA managers Ms. Gavin and Ms. Roundtree, and the Resident Council members and volunteers who gave of their time. PLAN YOUR VOTE!

ANC 2F Commissioners Out in the Community | Last week Commissioner Janice Ferebee 2F08 helped residents of Claridge Towers | ANC 2F07 (one of 4 DC Housing Authority buildings housing senior residents with disabilities) with their GET OUT THE VOTE activities (they were at it again this week and altogether snagged 25 new VOTER REGISTRATIONS).

Happy New Year! Looking forward to attending my first ANC 2F Monthly Public Meeting, as an official Commissioner 2F08 (Janice Ferebee), this evening at 7:00 p.m., at the Washington Plaza Hotel, at 10 Thomas Circle (that's me and Commissioner John Fanning, ANC 2F04 & Chair, at the Swearing-In Ceremony on January 2, 2019). Come on out to LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD! Here's to a great year in ANC 2F!
Hello ANC2F! I read this article and congratulate you for your recent $25k bounty 'benefits' to exchange for not having to accomodate a single unit of affordable housing in a luxury building in your neighborhood, but instead have it moved to mine. I assume you'll be passing along those $25K in benefits to my neighborhood, where public amenities are severely lacking. The comparatively disadvantaged family that will have to live up in my neighborhood, further from the better schools, parks, transportation, and jobs offered in Shaw, will surely need it. Though we already have a far greater number of affordable units, we'll be happy to absorb those that Shaw just can't possibly see their way to accomodate. Because we're like that up here. I'm sure ANC 4D will be able to provide you with the bank account details for the transfer. Kindest regards! Myles Smith Kansas Ave NW
