Qualifications Dorothy Douglas, a lifelong Washingtonian, has for over 30 years been an outspoken voice for the communities in which she has lived in Wards 5, 6, 8, and mostly in Ward 7 – a volunteer community advocate for improving the quality of life for DC residents. She has spent  more than a decade as an ANC Commissioner and remains one today, fighting to ensure that her community in Ward 7 receives its fair share of recognition and resources to secure members’ needs being met. Dorothy has been a champion for affordable housing in the Deanwood and Kenilworth communities, with targeted housing units for our seniors and returning citizens. Douglas began her career as a volunteer worker campaigning for the Joe Louis foundation at age 13 and helping Ward 6 raise the most funds in DC to donate to children impacted by cerebral palsy. She attended DCPS schools; received her Bachelor of Arts degree from UDC; and in 1992 became the Director of Deanwood Youth Services, Inc., a community outreach program seeking to help DC youths with summer and after school jobs; tutorial and educational programs as well.  Dorothy decided to forego her salary to ensure that the program’s budget was fully dedicated to providing the critical services of the program to the youth.  In 1992 she was elected as President of the Deanwood Civic Association, serving two terms; and in 2008, she was elected as the first black woman to be the Ward 7 representative for the DC State Board of Education.   Commissioner Douglas is proud of her work and the many families she's helped over the years as the ANC commissioner for 7D03. Under the new redistricted ANC boundaries, she looks forward to continuing her fight and bring the voice of Deanwood seniors back to the ANC as the new commissioner for 7C07!
