About Us

Who we are

Greater Greater Washington is a community of people who want to live and work in communities with sidewalks, bike lanes, and frequent transit; with grocery stores, parks, and plenty of housing choices at attainable prices; that is accessible and welcoming to people of all income levels and backgrounds.

Read our mission statement and values.

Some of us are volunteers, who participate by writing and talking about ways the Washington metro region can reflect this vision. Many others are readers, commenters, and advocates who advance conversations on and offline. A few of us are staff and board of directors, who make sure that the organization runs efficiently and smoothly so Greater Greater Washington can continue to create space for intelligent dialogue and action to make our region greater.
