Xavier Brown, Anacostia Watershed Ambassador, shared the following:

Location and sponsoring agency/organization: I am the Ambassador for the Anacostia River location in Washington D.C. The University of the District of Columbia (UDC) is the sponsoring organization. 

Favorite part of the watershed: My favorite part of the watershed is Anacostia Park. I ride my bike on the trail 3-4 days a week and there is a roller skating rink that brings people together. The river is always active and is a safe space for Black love and joy.

Current priorities: One of our current Partnership priorities is finding creative ways to connect our federal partners to the Anacostia High School.

Best accomplishment to date: Our Partnership completed the first year of a Justice40 internship for Anacostia High School students in collaboration with UDC and the Department of the Interior.
