Shared learning, aligned giving, and collaborative action are essential tools used by WRAG members to strengthen the District of Columbia, Northern Virginia, and suburban Maryland.

WRAG's primary focus areas currently are Civic ActionChildren, Youth, and FamiliesHealthy CommunitiesRacial Equity, and Housing.
