What You Need To Know
Roundtable Member Gets Front Page Coverage in Post
When Roundtable member, Critical Exposure (CE), participated in our East of the River Media Training, they met Annie Gowen, a Washington Post reporter who covers wealth and poverty.
Fascinated by the students involved with Critical Exposure, Gowen shadowed the students to learn more about their campaigns to build new libraries and fight for restorative justice programs. After months, the story was finally published- on the front page of last Thursday's paper.
Read how the story developed- and how the Nonprofit Roundtable began the process- in a blog post written by Alison Hanold, CE's Development and Communications Director.

DCPS Budget Cuts Due to Low Enrollment
The Washington Post reports, "Officials built D.C. Public Schools’s current budget on the assumption that 47,174 students would enroll this year. But only 45,557 children actually showed up...That decline means a loss of at least $14.5 million in local funds, according to the mayor’s budget documents, or as much as $25 million, according to the D.C. Fiscal Policy Institute analysis that accounts for the effects of inflation and supplemental spending expected this year."
