Positions of the 2014 DC Mayoral Candidates on Social Issues

You can find the following and more positions on our DC Mayoral Candidate social issue positions comparison chart at

 DC Mayoral candidates David Catania, Muriel Bowser, Carol Schwartz and Bruce Majors to not support defining marriage as being between only one man and one woman.

David Catania and Muriel Bowser both support the legalization of the growing and possession of marijuana in the District of Columbia (Proposition 71).

Only Bruce Majors bothered to answer the Urban Life Training Social Issues Questionnaire as to whether or not they will support a Right Choices Youth Prevention Corps that promotes sexual abstinence before marriage.  Based on our current and previous interactions with both Councilmembers Catania and Bowser it is unlikely that either will support such an effort.

Summer Saturday Mentoring successfully concluded on August 23, 2014.  Howard University 2014 Graduate Syreeta Crawford and Senior Brianna Bingham lead the sessions.  Over the course of four Saturdays, participants learned about resisting peer pressure and making wise decisions, the meaning of the Biblical story of the Fall of Man, how to lead a meaningful life, and about the Principles of Spiritual Growth.

STAR Guide Mentor Brianna Bingham,   Howard University senior shared: 

The topics are very relevant to any adolescent or anyone between the ages of high school and college.  These are real life situations that you go through [that teach] the importance of remaining abstinent.   Brianna also added It's not about you, it's about you going out there and trying to help someone else.
