Joint Statement from Golden Triangle BID Executive Director Leona Agouridis and DowntownDC BID President & CEO Neil Albert:
“We stand united with Mayor Muriel Bowser in supporting today’s visual demonstration as well as the many demonstrators here in our nation’s capital who have been exercising their rights in the neighborhoods we have helped manage, fund, grow, support and protect.
The Golden Triangle and DowntownDC Business Improvement Districts (BIDs), have long served as the stage for significant moments of our nation’s history. We are neighborhoods that welcome all to exercise their First Amendment rights.”
