Who we are
Smart DC is a coalition of small businesses, minority contractors, advocates, community organizations, and D.C. residents.  We believe in working to build a District that works for us.

Why it matters
Our City has challenges — in Ward 8, the rate of unemployment is above 30% and the poverty rate is even higher. Politicians and corrupt companies promise they're going to provide quality jobs and real opportunities for D.C. residents, but then they pull the rug out from under us.

WE need to change things
Urban development should mean good jobs for D.C. residents, benefits for D.C. neighborhoods, growth for D.C. businesses, and taxes for D.C. services.  This is our city and it should be our priority, not a bank’s investment or a big company’s bottom line.
