Earlier this month, the Mayor and DC Council were sworn in to begin a new term. The 2022 election and redistricting that happened after 2020 means you may have a new Councilmember representing your Ward. It is important to know how to be in touch with those who represent you, including the At-large Councilmembers. To find out if your Ward has changed and who your Councilmembers are, visit, scroll to the bottom of the website and type in your address in the “Find your Councilmember” section. There you will also learn what committees they serve on and how to contact them.

With the holiday season right around the corner, chances are there's something about the run-up to the new year that may leave you feeling less than jolly, or possibly actively igniting anxiety and apprehension. There are many reasons why people may be feeling uneasy about the holiday season. You may not trust yourself around the punch bowl, or your wallet is feeling light. You may have had a disagreement with a family member and fear an upcoming gathering. Being alone may be getting you down. For some, their own expectations could derail the holiday spirit.
