What is it about?

A neighborhood Pentagon well-known for the open drug scene can be a better place for living. Syringe exchange, clean-ups involving people who use drugs and active parents and most importantly mutual dialogue between the majority and minorities living in the community may contribute to this vision. Odyseus wants to improve the life in this community through community organizing.
