What Is District Bridges’ Placekeepers Program?
We focus on coalescing the skills and expertise of local residents and engaging the neighborhood community in Columbia Heights and Mount Pleasant through our Placekeepers Program.
“Placekeepers” are resident volunteers that take part in localized projects on a consistent basis aimed at making their neighborhood more accessible, safe, and equitable for all.
The core pillars of the District Bridges Placekeepers Program consist of the following:
- Community beautification and monthly clean-ups
- Free and accessible community events
- The Civic Plaza Neighbors Initiative: providing support to local residents
