Our agency's Performance Oversight Hearing is scheduled for 9 am on Thursday, February 29, 2024.
As you may know, Performance Oversight Hearings provide an opportunity for Council members to review the implementation of programs, evaluate budgetary allocations, and address any concerns regarding the efficiency and effectiveness of government operations.
As such, these hearings serve as a mechanism for accountability and transparency in the management of public resources and services in the District of Columbia.
We encourage you to tune in and watch live. There is also an opportunity to testify during the hearing or to submit written testimony as a public witness.

Join us in celebrating the inaugural run of CAH’s Black History Month exhibition, Legacy: Civil Rights at 60. We invite you to a closing reception in the gallery. This event features a panel discussion from 6:30 to 7:30 pm with Civil Rights leaders of today reflecting on the last six decades of direct action works since the 1964 passing of the Civil Rights Act.
Additionally, before and during the closing reception from 4 to 8 pm CAH is excited to partner with HumanitiesDC’s Oral History Collaborative on a pop-up Story Booth in our 200 I (Eye) St. Community Room. Attendees will have the chance to share a short form story of protest or civic action from the last six decades of civil rights work. Captured stories will be archived on CAH’s website.
Story Booth participation limit is 15 attendees. Please indicate in your RSVP if you’d like to participate.
For reasonable accommodation requests regarding access and inclusion, please contact David Markey ([email protected]), no later than 5 business days before the start of this event.
