The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) must deliver a safer, more reliable and more efficient Metro system for the Washington metro region to have a chance of attracting top-line investments from global tech giants.

As the Langston Initiative moves forward, the Federal City Council (FC2) is recruiting trustees to join four committees to help guide project decision-making on everything from facilities planning to marketing and community outreach.

“The scope of the Langston Initiative is expansive and demands a lot of work,” says Emeka Moneme, FC2’s Deputy Executive Director. “We definitely want more arms and legs rowing with us. More importantly, we want to make sure as many trustees as possible feel real ownership of this work and have a chance to participate.”
