Southwest is the most dynamic neighborhood in our nation’s capital.  We invite you to look around and stay a while. You’ll be glad you did.

Our Mission:
     To improve the quality of life for all residents; to open to every resident the wide cultural horizon of urban living; to help create rich and equal social, educational and economic opportunities for residents of Southwest DC; to assist in providing the opportunity for gainful employment for all; to promote development of the economic and aesthetic potential of Southwest; and preserve its diverse history.  This mission shall be pursued without regard to the social, economic and racial barriers that have divided cities in the past.

To see all the neighborhood news please visit,

SWNA Community Meetings have been cancelled until further notice.  We will continue posting on this website, Nextdoor Neighbor, Twitter and Facebook.
