Federal & DC Relations Committee

From the Hill to the Hilltop, the Federal & DC Relations Committee is focused on advocating on a local and national level. We work to ensure we are constantly informed, addressing relevant issues as they arise, educating the student body, integrating ourselves with the DC community, and breaking the "Georgetown Bubble" that has divided students from the rest of DC. Central issues we are focusing on this year include mental heath advocacy, higher education advocacy, and civil rights advocacy. As Georgetown students, we believe we are in the ideal location to begin leaving our mark beyond the confines of 37th and O. Additionally, we work closely with administration, alumni, and government leaders to organize a variety of events to engage our student body. The objective is to serve as the liaison between the federal government, the local government, and Georgetown University. Whether that be a networking event or an educational event, we want to make it clear that we are here to serve a plethora of student needs.
