How DC is interrupting violence in neighborhoods without police reliance

PUBLIC SAFETY
– Here’s the story of one of DC’s Violence Interrupters, a position created to be an alternative to policing. This person’s job is to try to de-escalate neighborhood disputes before someone is seriously hurt, especially after a shooting. (WaPo, 12/14)

Similar initiatives have been started in Baltimore, Chicago and some other cities. The hope is fellow residents, those who understand what it is like to live in a violent neighborhood, can convince others to join a jobs program, stay in school, stop selling drugs. Lower a gun.

The impact is hard to measure — a dispute quieted, anger channeled elsewhere, retaliation that is never carried out. But city leaders hope small success stories eventually will show up in the broader violent crime numbers, which for now are trending the wrong way.

How a refundable EITC credit will help Virginia families

POVERTY | The Commonwealth Institute for Fiscal Analysis discusses why making the EITC credit refundable will make it stronger and benefit all families, including working families with low and moderate incomes, and especially families of color. (TCI Blog, 11/28)

The positive impacts of the EITC are well documented. State EITCs have been shown to reduce poverty in communities of color. Research finds that the average state EITC benefit for non-white- or Hispanic-headed households was $120 greater than for non-Hispanic white households, and state EITCs reduce poverty for a larger share (relative to their share of the population) of the non-white and Hispanic population.

State EITCs also are associated with educational benefits for children of color. Studies show that young children in low-income households who get the state or federal EITC tend to see increased educational achievement and attainment.

A push for more education on World AIDS Day

HIV/AIDS | Tomorrow is World AIDS Day. Metro Weekly spoke with DeMarc Hickson, executive director of US Helping Us, a DC organization committed to reducing HIV infection in the Black community, about the importance of education in fighting stigma. (Metro Weekly, 11/29)

An increase in community education can help to reduce the stigma around HIV, and that it can also, in reducing the stigma, encourage individuals that may have anxiety about coming in to get tested, people who may want to know their status but are scared to know. If somebody hasn’t been tested in the past 12 months, or three months as a transgender individual or a gay and bisexual man, then get tested so that you can know your status.

DC will implement a law that allows the city to buy buildings to keep them affordable

HOUSING
– Yesterday, DC’s Mayor Muriel Bowser announced that the city will implement a ten-year-old law to allow the city to buy residential buildings that are put up for sale to make sure they remain affordable. (WAMU, 11/15)

Under the rules written by the Bowser administration, D.C. will be able to invoke DOPA on any residential building of more than five units as long as at least a quarter of the existing units are deemed affordable. “Affordable” is defined as rent that doesn’t exceed 30 percent of the income of a tenant making half the area median income, which is $110,000 a year for a family of four. (For a single person making $38,000 a year, “affordable” rent would be about $1,000 a month). It also includes rental units where the tenant is receiving city assistance.

How it feels to be a deaf person in prison

CRIMINAL JUSTICE | When individuals are incarcerated, often they are not able to access resources like adequate medical care and other support they need. In this article, a returning citizen who is deaf discusses how he was treated, including being denied American Sign Language interpreters. (The Marshall Project, 10/18)

While I was in prison they had no American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters. None of the staff knew sign language, not the doctors or the nurses, the mental health department, the administration, the chaplain, the mail room. Nobody. In the barbershop, in the chow hall, I couldn’t communicate with the other inmates. When I was assaulted, I couldn’t use the phone to call the Prison Rape Elimination Act (a federal law meant to prevent sexual assault in prison) hotline to report what happened. And when they finally sent an interviewer, there was no interpreter. Pretty much everywhere I went, there was no access to ASL. Really, it was deprivation.

Tenants fight for affordable housing from church in DC

HOUSING | A DC resident recently passed away, leaving about 6 occupied four-unit apartment buildings located in northeast DC to the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Now the tenants, along with affordable housing advocates, are trying to work with the church to stay in their homes. (WCP, 10/11)

On Feb. 20, the executor of Doyle’s estate transferred the deeds of these properties to the basilica for a sum of zero dollars. The tenants found themselves in an unusual bind, caught in legal limbo by both District rental laws and those applying to religious institutions. Though D.C.’s Tenant Opportunity to Purchase Act gives tenants a first right of refusal to purchase their buildings when they go up for sale, TOPA doesn’t apply when the building changes hands through a deed transfer from a decedent to a charity.

And as the Roman Catholic Church, the basilica “is not permitted to manage or own rental properties as a trade or business,” according to a letter that Kevin Kavanaugh, treasurer of basilica subsidiary BNSIC Title Holding Corporation, sent to 636 Girard Street NE resident Heather Benno this summer. Kavanaugh is also the comptroller of the basilica.

A recently passed law may influence the growth of worker cooperatives in US

WORKFORCE
– Advocates applaud a new law, the National Defense Authorization Act, which directs the U.S. Small Business Administration to help retiring owners sell their businesses to their employees through a worker cooperative or as an Employee Stock Ownership Plan. (YES! Magazine, 9/25)

As that wave of retirees breaks, business owners don’t have many options. Most do not have children who want to run the business, according to Joseph Blasi and Douglas Kruse, professors at the Rutgers School of Management and Labor Relations. Studies show that many will simply close up shop, with their employees losing their jobs. Some may sell to a competitor such as another local company, a larger publicly traded corporation, or a private equity fund—options that also can trigger job losses.

“That makes selling their businesses to the workers who helped create all the value in the first place one of the best options available,” Blasi and Kruse wrote in The Conversation. “It not only helps secure the owner’s retirement but also leaves behind a legacy in the local community.”

School ties to ICE makes school unsafe for undocumented and other immigrant students

EDUCATION | Greater Washington students are back in school. While some students can go to school worry-free, immigrant students, especially those who are undocumented or who have family that are, are forced to go to school every day in fear of authorities reporting them to ICE. (WAMU, 9/6)

This fear is increasingly common in schools in the D.C. area. While some children of immigrants go to class but are afraid to talk to authority figures, others have stopped attending school entirely.

“You have those senior ones who are even afraid to walk or feel like they are not going to be able to graduate because of their legal status,” says Sandra Shephard, the Managing Director for the Latin American Youth Center in Prince George’s County and a counselor for immigrant youth. “I had a case in May where a young person actually wanted to commit suicide because he was afraid that if he walked to get his diploma, immigration was going to come get him and his family.”

Commuting time may disadvantage job applicants in DC, according to new study

TRANSPORTATION
– Researchers at the University of Notre Dame conducted a study in the District to discover if low-wage employers care about where employees live. They applied for jobs in what they call “DC’s core” with fictional resumes, and found that employees were more likely to respond to people who were living in nearby affluent neighborhoods. (Citylab, 8/30)

“You can imagine this world in which particular locations become self-perpetuating concentrations of poverty, because they have limited access to jobs, because it’s hard to physically move from one place to the other, and employers know that—so they look at the resumé and say, “Aah, Alabama Avenue, I’m not sure if that person can make it up here reliably, I think I’ll take the person who lives a little bit closer,” David C. Phillips [lead researcher] said. “So you can have a situation where the person moves to a low-income neighborhood because they’re poor, and they end up remaining in that situation because of where they live.”
