Checking Out the Respect the District Installation at 14th & Irving

Over the weekend I saw the following installation at the southwest corner of 14th and Irving streets, NW, which I guess has been there since January 10th. In checking out @RespecttheDistrict‘s Twitter profile, it states the following — The Respect Flag at 14th & Irving in DC. Designed by emzki. Connect your stories & selfies taken through the stars. Respect!

This art installation  is connected to Vision Zero DC, and is their 2nd public art installation aimed at preventing Street Harassment.

    Hi Kent when I first saw this is thought it was about respecting DC as an independent entity…free from Congressional meddling…

    Am also glad, impressed that people are addressing street harassment.. unfortunately I often have to protect the young women on my staff from “store” harassment…sometimes hard to believe that in 2017 we STILL have to fight this battle.
