DC FACES Working Group
Good morning neighbors,
Mayor Bowser has charged the District of Columbia Facilities and Commemorative Expressions (DCFACES) Working Group with evaluating the names of DC Government owned facilities, and making recommendations as to what, if any, actions should be taken to change facility and entity names.
If a person the facility or entity is named after is inconsistent with our DC values, and has in some way encouraged the oppression of communities of color or contributed to the long history of systemic racism, this working group will seek to rectify that.
DC Government-owned streets
DC Government-owned buildings (libraries, schools, rec centers, etc.)
DC Government-owned parks
Statues in DC Government-owned parks
Other named public spaces
