Come find out where the candidates stand on issues you care about and tell them what you think.
Questions will focus on housing accessibility, employment for the 50+, improving transit policy, and access to home and community-based services. Your council member will make decisions that will have long-term effects on you and your family. That's why AARP DC in partnership with the DC Grassroots Planning Coalition is bringing you the facts so you can decide which candidate shares your views and values.

Attendees will also have an opportunity to have their questions asked to candidates.
