The impact of housing policy on the character of neighborhoods and communities east of the Anacostia River was the focus of this conversation.

Participants included Chester Hart from Southeast Ministries, AMEN Program; Professor Brett Williams from American University; Al 'Butch' Hopkins from the Anacostia Economic Development Corporation; Janice Burgess from DC Housing Authority, Office of Planning; Professor Emeritus Dorn McGrath from George Washington University; Christopher Smith from W.C.
