To receive occasional updates about WIN actions, and to learn of engagement opportunities at St. Mark’s, email

We support WIN with our time, talent, and treasure. This engagement enriches all of us: those at St. Mark’s, those in the larger DC religious/spiritual community, and most important those whom WIN actions affect. We accomplish far more together than we could alone.

We’re now working with WIN to

  • ensure our elected officials care about the needs of the underserved,
  • push the city to be more accountable for reducing fossil fuel dependence in buildings,
  • work with the Senior Housing at the Potomac Gardens public housing on Capitol Hill for maintenance attention, and for residents’ rights education and power organizing on a federally funded renovation initiative (RAD), and
  • expand affordable housing opportunities in Ward 3.

This page describes What’s Next for St. Mark’s in WIN and How We Got Here.

More about WIN itself: on Facebook and on the web.

Love Your Neighbor: WIN’s organizing starts with listening to your neighbor to learn what people care about and what their concerns are. And then WIN builds relationships. This is the way WIN supports residents across the city advocating for safety, affordable housing, and to be treated with dignity. It is key to St. Mark’s engagement with WIN.

We Got Here by Showing Up

The St. Mark’s Team

St. Mark’s work in WIN is coordinated by Kit Arrington, Edna Boone, Josie Jordan, Betsy Agle, Steve Dalzell,and Christoph Berendes.

64 St. Mark’s parishioners have joined the parish WIN email list to stay informed about ways to take action and learn more. Many have stepped into “boots on the ground” participation and many have turned out as “butts in seats” – showing up when asked because numbers matter – online and now in-person!

Contact to join the email list or for more information.
