How can we make Falls Church more welcoming for all?

We're excited to announce that Jill Kaneff, Senior Regional Demographer at the Northern Virginia Regional Commission, will talk to us about ethnic, racial and socioeconomic trends in Falls Church and the Northern Virginia area.

We'll also learn about the work of Welcoming Falls Church, Homestretch, Falls Church Homeless Shelter, and other community organizations in the city that support vulnerable populations.

Finally, meet neighbors as we wrap the gifts collected from the Holiday Donation Drive for refugee families in Falls Church and others.

of support for city policies, projects and programs that promote
the pillars of our city’s openness, vibrancy, and sustainability.
