In the past year, we’ve seen major payoffs from our advocacy efforts including winning a historic vote at the region’s Transportation Planning Board to reduce emissions from transportation by 50% by 2030; passing Thrive 2050, Montgomery County’s general plan update; approval of the Chevy Chase Small Area Plan which prioritizes a diversity of new homes, especially affordable homes; and making progress with our campaign for Safer Streets for Bailey’s Crossroads.
We’re often asked how we’re so effective given that we have just six people on staff and work regionally and in local communities across DC and the Maryland and Virginia suburbs.
Our capable, passionate staff members bring their hearts and minds to this work every day. But the real reason we’re so effective is because of you, our community advocates and donors! You speak up with us in your communities, you donate to support our work, and you grow the movement with us.
We really need you! By December 31, we need to raise $150,000 to continue our work. There is good news: our biggest donors have offered over $70,000 in matching gifts so any amount you give will go twice as far!
You make our work possible. If you can, please contribute to CSG today so that we can continue to fight for a more inclusive, accessible region.
