How can any member of the Council fight for your needs if we aren't constantly checking with you to see what your needs are? In addition to regularly assessing your needs, town hall meetings will help to address any discrepancies you have with the work your representative(s) on the Council is doing, and provide you with the vehicle to let your voice be continuously heard. Dr. Mic will commit to bi-annual town hall meetings.
Dr. Mic will commit to having a dynamic constituent service department where all they do is answer your concerns. His office will work to get your concern to the responsible party, and work to ensure that resolution is obtained.
Dr. Mic will work for and with the LGBTQI+ community to enact District laws and policies that will provide protection, enhancement of quality of life, support of community initiatives, and equality.
African American Lives Matter, not just during times of protests, but at all times. Dr. Mic has committed his life to the cause of equal right and protections under the law for African Americans, and is committed to ensuring that African Americans no longer feel disenfranchised by a DC government that they don't believe fully represents or respects them! Dr. Mic will work to make the Mayor's Office of African American Affairs more visible in the community, as well as establish a task force to address the specific deficiencIes and disparities affecting the African American community in DC.
Our youth represent our future-- tomorrow's leaders! Dr. Mic will work for our youth to provide summer education, jobs, college preparation courses, and will solicit their input on ways to end violence, especially against our youth, in our city!
Too often in the District, our incarcerated citizens who have paid their debt to society are never reacclimatized into society. Looking out at a world that has changed without them, they start to view the internal climate of incarceration as a positive when compared to the world they now have to navigate. Dr. Mic will propose legislation that makes it easier to obtain housing for our newly freed citizens, provide job skills training and the ability to obtain high school diplomas, as well as college and terminal degrees. In addition, Dr. Mic will support legislation that prohibits and directly outlaws discrimination in employment hiring and tenure practices concerning formerly incarcerated individuals.
Dr. Mic will work for all DC citizens, and that includes our citizens who are hearing and visually impaired. Dr. Mic will work to establish an Office of Hearing and Visually Impaired Services, that will work with DC Council to address issues such as housing, transportation, healthcare, education, and ease of access (for this population) to services the District of Columbia provides.
