About The Coalition

The Healthy DC & Me Leadership Coalition, Inc.  is a solid core of Community-leading organizations & partners who have legally come together with a vested interest in preserving and restoring higher standards of mental & trauma healthcare, and for the purposes of creating a community-based, stand-alone trauma & wellness resource center to help eradicate the future existence of socially & racially motivated determinants which are systemically impeding the quality of life for low-income and vulnerable members of the community in the Nation’s Capital of Washington, D.C.

The Mayor’s proposed new hospital at St. Elizabeth, (RE: B23-0777–New Hospital at St. Elizabeth’s Act of 2020), is a resemblance of yesterday’s failures & will force the District’s taxpayers to accept more of the same inadequate governing on matters involving their well-being. African Americans are the largest population in the District to succumb to COVID-19 conditions at approximately 50.3% and climbing. D.C. citizens are depressed & managing high levels of anxiety daily. Professional empathies & trauma informed sensitivities are vastly needed.

The Healthy D.C. & Me Leadership Coalition are seeking adequate and accountable appropriations of resources on behalf of our deserving citizens residing in Wards 7 & 8 who are living without comprehensive community healthcare & mental wellness solutions daily. Our most vulnerable citizens need to be rescued from cycles of low standards and low expectations. The Mayor’s project is insulting & needs more work; thus our coalition is planning to successfully introduce & to build the Capital City (Level II) Emergency Trauma & Wellness Center by the Spring of 2023.

The CCETC wellness center project will be managed and operated by our coalition’s board appointed professionals & organizational affiliates.

African Americans are six (6) times more likely to die in the District of Columbia than our White citizens. Enough is enough. The statistics are evident. The Mayor’s project does not provide a strong adaptation of principles and practices that will genuinely, deliberately and immediately raise the standards of care for our Black citizens, so that they are equal to that of our Caucasian citizens across the District and especially in Wards 7 & 8.

The District currently has four (4) Level I trauma centers located “West” of the Anacostia river where healthcare disparities are seemingly obsolete, and access to resources are more abundantly made available. Racism is a mental health crisis that must be addressed across the nation, and in the Nation’s Capital. Our coalition members are a team of dedicated organizations and professionals committed to doing so.
