Ward 7 Commuity Forum A Huge Success!!
This past Saturday, Oct 29th, we had a very successful forum in Ward 7! We had a packed house and late-comers had to search the library for extra chairs to sit on! Folks from all over Ward 7 and other parts of DC attended and participated. We even had a reentry professional from Michigan join us and give us valuable input! After initial introductions and ice-breakers, we got down to business. Every single person there participated. We especially appreciated the contributions from the Ward 7 reentrants who discussed issues and barriers they are facing. They were given awesome, practical feedback on such issues as what companies will give a reentrant who has a CDL license an opportunity and how to set up as a vendor in DC with the new laws being taken into account. Thank you to all who attended and we hope to see everybody at the next forum!
