Councilmember Todd recently celebrated the diversity of Ward 4 and the District at two events. Last week, he kicked off Caribbean Cuisine Month at Spark Caribbean-Inspired Smokehouse. The Councilmember was delighted to present a Ceremonial Resolution recognizing the occasion. He remarked that Ward 4 has the largest Caribbean-American population in the District, and has long been the historic home of DC’s Caribbean-American Community, so marking Caribbean Cuisine Month and Caribbean-American Heritage Month was especially important.
Tuesday, Councilmember Todd attended the Immigrant Heritage Month Celebration at the Reeves Center. Standing with the Directors of the Mayor’s Offices on Latinao Affairs, Asian & Pacific Islander Affairs, and African Affairs, Councilmember Todd remarked that the District’s commitment to our immigrant community is ironclad. From expanding Immigrant Justice Legal Services grant funding, to remaining a sanctuary city, the District values the diverse perspectives and experiences that our immigrants bring, and will continue to remain a welcoming and inclusive city for people of all backgrounds and nationalities.
