“No. From what I can see, it’s obvious that it’s not. I don’t have it so much in the community that I live in, but in Washington D.C., which is the closest city to me, it’s very prevalent there.”
Kelvin H.
Washington, D.C.
“I’ve been here for four days and from what I’m seeing, no. … It’s bad in Washington D.C, also. I don’t see any decrease in it. I pray and hope that someday it will be better.”

Mildred Newkirk
