In May 2017, we launched DC Ideas Fest at the historic Carnegie Library in the heart of DC. There, neighbors from every quadrant and all eight wards came together for two days of conversation, provocative keynotes, insightful documentaries, powerful literature and art – all designed to take a bold, fresh look at the ways, good and bad, that the city is changing and what positive role we can each play in that change. It was a great beginning to a conversation that should never end, and now we are asking for your support to keep it going! All donations are tax-deductible.
