President Barack Obama and his family attended Easter Sunday services at Allen Chapel AME Church in Southeast Washington’s Ward 8 today. The church is a few blocks from a place the President should visit on Monday: the city’s One-Stop Employment Center at 2626A Naylor Road SE (behind AutoZone). Ward 8 has a 28 percent unemployment rate.
Allen Chapel distributes food to the needy every Friday and every other Wednesday at Outreach House (2443 Ainger Place). Maybe Mrs. Obama could bring over some produce from the White House Vegetable Garden.
