About

What is the "A Cleaner Ward 7 Initiative"?

Well, this will be a multi-year initiative designed to increase awareness in the citizens of Ward 7, Washington D.C, about the problem of litter going into the Anacostia River.

I have been going out by myself and with others over the past several months and doing what we can to clean up in the Anacostia river watershed. However, it would be more impactful if I could continue to get some help from other volunteers, including residents of Ward 7. The following link is an example of a large group we had who helped us clean up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2u71ZsXo26k

We want to help empower the residents of Ward 7 Washington D.C to become active in the fight to take care of our planet, because we are all in this together. As we move forward with this initiative, we are striving to assemble a powerful team of activists and volunteers who are willing to go out and do something to beautify Ward 7 Washington D.C through the removal of trash in our parks and streets.

The problem we are facing with the degradation of the environment is one that we all must contribute to solving.

Students who need community service hours are welcomed. We usually clean up rain, sleet or snow and we hope to see you at our upcomming 2016 clean up events. If you are interested in working with us please contact us @ mark@acleanerward7.org or call me at 202.422.6185

Thank you.
