DMPED's Closer: December Edition 2016

Home for the Holidays
Happy Holidays Washingtonians!
This is the time of the year when many of us go “Home for the Holidays.” 
And lucky for us, home is Washington, D.C. 
This month, we learned that 10,000 more people in 2016 chose the District as their new “home” according to new U.S. Census Bureau data. In fact, the District has not had this many residents since the 1970s! 
I am ecstatic about this news. It drives me to continue what we are doing at DMPED – and do even more.
