More on Redistricting

 
Ward 1’s 2020 Census numbers show that we grew at almost exactly the citywide average, which meant that Ward 1’s boundaries itself did not have to change. This is something to be proud of, as it shows that Ward 1’s neighborhoods continue to contribute their fair share of the significant housing need across the District. 
 
Ward 1 saw major demographic shifts over last 10 years, with a decline in Black population by about 6,000 residents and a similar increase in the White population. The already significant Hispanic population continued to grow, and the Asian population grew by 2,000 residents, a 70% increase.
 
These are data points to grapple with, both in our redistricting process and in our policymaking. Ward 1 in 2021 remains one of the most diverse Wards in DC by both race and income, but this is not something I take for granted. We must choose every day to protect and foster that diversity through aggressive investments in housing and community services. 
 
This redistricting cycle also presents an opportunity to elevate the voices of those racial and ethnic groups more than we ever have before. I plan on having the Ward 1 Task Force work with the Council Office on Racial Equity from early and often through its process and incorporate this as a core tenant of its work.
 
Ward 1 has two of the largest ANCs by number of commissioners, and our ANC boundaries that are sometimes inconsistent with how residents experience their neighborhoods. The boundaries of ANCs 1A, B, C, and D have hardly changed in the last several decades. I am looking forward to hearing from our ANCs and communities about how best to divide up the challenging work of being a commissioner so that Ward 1 has strong advocates working for residents from east to west and north to south.
