Inaugural Member Summit 
Thursday, January 24, 2019, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm 

CNHED is excited to kick off the new year with the first-ever CNHED Member Summit. Open only to active CNHED members, we learned what topics were most important to you as a CNHED member, and the work you do in your respective organizations and networks. Our members’ voices are essential to CNHED’s success, and we heard you!  Together, we can and will bring more resources than ever to the District’s vibrant and diverse neighborhoods, equitably meet the needs of all community members, and foster a stronger District.


February Monthly Meeting | Symptoms of a Deeper Problem: How stressors and shocks exasperate racial inequity while widening the wealth divide.
Thursday, February 28, 2019, noon – 3:00 pm

Our monthly meeting on “Symptoms of a Deeper Problem: How stresses and shocks exasperate racial inequity while widening the wealth divide” was a great success! The government shutdown may be over (for now), but the consequences of it continue to reverberate throughout the District. This may not be an isolated incident, and it reminds us of how critical having financial security is for many Washingtonians.
