Upcoming Events / Deadlines:

Community spotlight on, well… us!

We’re excited to announce that DC EA received a grant from CEA to allow Andy (back left) to work part time on organizing this group! We’ve got a great group of volunteer organizers as well, Melissa (left front), Geoff (right front), and Ben (right back)—and we’ve got a lot of exciting things planned for this group. If you want to chat with us, get involved in any way—big or small—or if you have questions or feedback, please get in touch!

Do you know someone in our community that should be in the spotlight? Maybe you have just published a book, gotten a new job, or started a new charity or project? If you have an idea for a future spotlight please email us to let us know!
