DC’s Ward 1 is Diverse, Gay Friendly

D.C. Council member Jim GrahamAs an openly gay man elected to the D.C. Council I am proud of the diversity of Ward One.

Enhancing and preserving that diversity is important to me. With 1,000 new residents moving into the District each month — many into Ward One — our diversity is changing every day.

Ward One is diverse in every sense of the word. It is home to more than 80,000 residents from all over the world — 50 different countries are represented and 24 different languages are spoken here. It is also a ward where one out of five persons lives in poverty — to whom I have a special responsibility as chairman of the Committee on Human Services.

By choosing to live in Ward One, every one of us has an opportunity to move beyond our own personal identities and learn from persons different from ourselves. Our differences can make us stronger as individuals and more resilient as a community.
