Our DC team runs and supports a whole host of campaigns on a wide variety of issues.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we joined the campaign for a truly just recovery that prioritizes meeting human needs.

We are a core organization in the Under 3 DC Campaign, working to make sure that all children in DC have what they need to thrive in the crucial first years of their lives, including universal affordable childcare, health supports, and more.

We are part of two coalitions working for racial equity in DC: the DC Initiative on Racial Equity and Local Government and the Community Oversight of Surveillance coalition. Together these coalitions work to make sure DC government and law enforcement work to fight racism, not to enable it.

We are the lead organization on the Campaign for DC Paid Family Leave, which is now in an implementation phase, making sure that our groundbreaking paid family and medical leave program helps as many families as possible.

We are part of the Fair Budget Coalition, and have advocated for DC’s budget to fund services and support for our people, not tax breaks for the wealthiest residents and corporations. Click on the coalition button below to see all of our current active coalition campaigns.

In 2017, we helped get the District to commit to turning the former Hebrew Home for the Aged into truly affordable housing to help keep long-time DC residents from being priced out of our community.
