The Turn It Down Coalition is a broad group of DC residents and businesses including medical facilities, hotels and restaurants from throughout the city that have organized together on the very limited and focused issue of excessive sound levels from some street performers.

The Coalition in no way intends to prevent or impede the ability of street performers to play what and where they want and to accept donations, our goal is only to address the specific issue of excessive sound levels.

On October 18, 2018, a representative for the Turn It Down Coalition appeared on the Kojo Nnamdi Show to discuss the issue of excessive sound levels from street performers. Listen to the full segment here.
