WCCD Members

After 10 years of work, 2018 was our best year! The WCCD membership represents diverse and talented women of color working in all aspects of community economic development throughout the DMV. The work centers around some of the most pressing issues of our time – affordable housing, jobs creation, financial literacy, wealth parity, and racial equity. WCCD members are dedicated to being the drivers of community revitalization and economic opportunity for all.
