"Don't despair, the money's there," says Kesh Ladduwahetty (center), a volunteer with D.C. for Democracy, during a rally at the Wilson Building in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, May 10, 2012. She told D.C. Council Chairman Kwame Brown that there is $240 million in surplus funding from the FY 2011 budget, $65 million from the FY 2012 budget, and that the city could raise a potential $20 million more by increasing the alcohol excise tax. She and other community services organizations are hoping for $32 to $40 million in funding in the FY 2013 budget for things like affordable housing and homeless services. (Barbara L.
