    Weekly Update from Your Alderman - January 27, 2017
    Thank you to everyone from our neighborhood who went to downtown and to Washington DC for the Women's March last Saturday. Seeing citizens come together in solidarity to speak up for equal rights for all is inspiring. Keep up the good work.
    http://48thward.org

  • Jarvis John Trump WINS.. Again!!

    She was one of the featured speakers at the DC (largest) rally. As a featured speaker, a leader of the "movement".

    You own it and her speech.

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    JJ, we don't own anything just because you say we do. And no Trump supporter gets to appoint a leader of the Women's Movement.
