Wayfinders and Innovators
Remarkable scientific, environmental and social policy initiatives by friends of CartaNova.
To kick off our new 'Wayfinders' series featuring innovative not-for-profits, we'd like to introduce you to our friends at ONE DC. Hailing from the famous Shaw Neighbourhood of Washington D.C. (Langston Hughs, Duke Ellington), ONE DC helps poor residents across the city to find good jobs, own their buildings, and to preserve their neighborhoods.
My hope is that our readers will connect with some of these stories and volunteer a small amount of time and/or resources towards helping these good projects succeed. Stay tuned!

We're very excited to present this exclusive interview.
