Our Values

DC Greens’ values are at the heart of our work.  These values reinforce each other, and are never practiced in isolation. We strive to align all of our work – both external and internal – to these values, and believe they are central to accomplishing our mission and vision. 

  • Collaboration:  We value collaboration over competition and enter every relationship looking for common ground.                                                                                      

  • Integrity:  We believe that change moves at the pace of trust, and that we must work diligently to earn and maintain trust in every relationship.  This includes being transparent and accountable, conducting ourselves with integrity, being responsive to needs, and treating others with compassion.                                                          

  • Creativity: We believe that a measure of creativity is necessary to find new solutions to old problems. While we are pragmatic in our approach, we value outside-the-box thinking, bringing equal measures of optimism and creative visioning into our work.                                                                                                                                    

  • Sustainability: We believe that large-scale system change can only occur with sustainable solutions.  We value sustainability in all of its meanings – seeking to engender change that is both environmentally sound and that shifts cultural priorities so that structures are put in place to support the work into the future.                    

  • Equity: We believe that our work can play a role in dismantling structural oppression. We value the perspectives and experiences of all people, and respect all forms of knowledge. We will work to ensure that marginalized voices are at the table and that their voices inform our work.
