A Unique Moment
The challenges currently facing the District of Columbia have made
concerted, coordinated citizen action more important than ever. One organization is
uniquely positioned to serve as a coordinating body for citizens' interests.
A Special Organization
The purpose of the Federation is
to work for the strengthening of residential communities and
to provide a forum for the expression and interchange of opinion
to further the interests of the people of the District of Columbia
to secure and make effective united action
The Federation's activities involve issues of local as well as citywide
interest, and may include testifying on behalf of the citizens of the District before
District agencies, before the Control Board, and before the Congress of the United States.
The Federation also serves as liaison with Congressional staff members on
matters important to District citizens, and engages in litigation when necessary. It also
works in concert with other citizen organizations to accomplish specific goals.
Membership in the Federation is available to any citizens association that
includes within its purposes the advancement of its community's interests and those of the
people of the District of Columbia.
Member associations should have at least 25 paid members, hold regularly
ordered meetings, and be organized for civic work. By joining the Federation, an
association in no way limits its liberty of action on any subject.
Member associations may send up to three voting delegates to each monthly
meeting, normally held on the second Tuesday of each month from September through June.
Meetings take place at the Sumner School. Dues at $60 annually.
