We are creating a connected, dynamic ecosystem in DC where any resident, innovator, or entrepreneur has the support, access and networks to create and scale solutions to tough local challenges
We envision a DC where community leaders, artists, philanthropists, foundations, entrepreneurs, faith-based leaders, local government, and social business leaders feel agency to take collective action.
Historical inequity and silos across the city continue to dampen the effects of the collective work done by hard-working community leaders. At the same time, trust in civic institutions is at an all-time low with Americans becoming increasingly disconnected from civic life and out of practice from the habits of civic engagement that are key to building thriving communities and creating solutions to local challenges.
In order to find more innovative, creative, and resilient ideas, we will mobilize a more representational group of this city's greatest resource, its people, into the process of turning ideas into action to address our trickiest challenges.
