This week we have experienced the darker side of the events happening around our country as someone has been placing xenophobic and hostile flyers in our neighborhoods in Ward 4.
I have spoken to residents, driven around the Ward, and been in constant contact with the Metropolitan Police Department. The Commander and his team are aware of these flyers and are working with residents.
If you see anyone or suspect any activity, please immediately contact MPD at 911 to report the incident. My staff and I will remain in contact with the Commander.
I want you to know that this is not something we will tolerate in Ward 4 or the District of Columbia. All residents, regardless of race, color, creed, religious affiliation or sexual preference, deserve to feel safe and respected in their community.
Together we will stand united against hatred and injustice! #Ward4Proud
