WOMEN + NONBINARY ANCS

ABOUT US

We are an informal group of women and nonbinary Advisory Neighborhood Commissioners that includes Commissioners from all eight Wards of the District of Columbia. Women and nonbinary Advisory Neighborhood Commissioners have gathered over the last several years, and this group seeks to further coordinate and institutionalize those efforts to build relationships and learn from each other.

 

We aim to build a network of support for women and nonbinary Advisory Neighborhood Commissioners to support more women and nonbinary people in serving in local elected office and to help them succeed once they are in office.

OUR GOALS

EDUCATION

We gather women and nonbinary Commissioners to learn from each other and subject matter experts.

RESOURCES

We share resources and discuss best practices across Commissions.

COMMUNITY BUILDING

We host events to get to know each other and build relationships.

If you are a woman or nonbinary Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner, please fill out this short survey to share more about you, your interests as a Commissioner, and how this group might provide support. 

Dozens of women and nonbinary Commissioners gathered at Metrobar in November for a "Meet Up" to get to know each other.

ORGANIZERS

A group of lead Commissioners from every Ward across the District plans programming and events specifically for women and nonbinary Advisory Neighborhood Commissioners. You can read more about our core group of organizers here
