I observed a lot of trash on the ground in certain parts of my community and after years of not doing anything I finally decided to do something. Over the last year I have been organizing the community and online in order to do litter prevention in a comprehensive way.

Additional Information:

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, for the most part, over the past several months and doing what I can. However, it would be more impactful if I could get some help from other volunteers, including residents of Ward 7.

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.

Here are some videos of the Watts Branch Anacostia and the Anacostia, which is now full of trash after a thunderstorm earlier this week.
