This episode of Voices Out Loud features Tracey Lee from Copland Manor Co-op in Southeast Washington, DC. Tracey is a native Washingtonian who lived in Southeast for most of her life. At first, her neighborhood was convenient and close to the metro. But later on, the surrounding area became a dangerous environment to raise children, so she quickly moved and found herself at Copeland Manor Co-op where she enjoys the benefits of living in an energy efficient home.
