  • Philip Pannell, executive director of the Anacostia Coordinating Council, said the D.C. mayor’s office is providing 1,000 posters and Andy Shallal, the founder of Busboys and Poets, is covering the costs of printing 2,000 posters, per the report.
  • The campaign is “something I think most people in the city can agree with, and is something they can support,” Pannell said.
  • More than 200 people lost their lives to violent crimes in the district last year, a toll D.C. Police Chief Robert Contee said is “completely unacceptable.”
