Washington Interfaith Network wins upgrades to community centers, parks, and school athletic facilities.

In 2009 WIN launched a youth organizing initiative named DC Youth Power Network (YPN).  YPN’s youth leaders successfully won significant upgrades to Parkview Recreation Center and creation of the new $2 million Bruce-Monroe Community Park.  Additionally, WIN led the fight for public investment in new recreation centers at Benning Terrace, Watts Branch, and Fort Stanton, the new library in Washington Highlands, and $21.5 million invested in for renovation of athletic facilities at six DC public high schools.  WIN leader Ebenezer Osanyingbemi leads a tour of the renovated Parkview Recreation Center.
