At the intersection of hospitality and justice...
For over 30 years the Festival Center has served as a hub for activists, artists, people of faith and no faith, seekers, and mission-driven groups. A landmark in the Adams Morgan neighborhood in Washington DC, the Center is a home to numerous organizations and a generative space for movements for justice. The School for Liberation teaches and trains faith leaders to serve in movements for justice as we seek to bring change to Washington DC and the rest of the country.

I have met brilliant people from all over the world, and right across the street! This is truly my lovely home away from home.
