About

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and to ensure the safety and health of our community, DC EcoWomen events will continue to be held online. Registered participants will receive details for virtual events 24 hours in advance of any event. While we have migrated to virtual programming, DC EcoWomen recognizes and values the support of our host of in-person programming over many years, Teaism, and all it has given to the community. During these challenging times, and if means allow, we welcome you to contribute to Teaism's GoFundMe in support of workers affected by the COVID-19 crisis.

Join us on
