Maryland-DC Chapter (MDC)

MDC is  the original WASH chapter with members or other interested people in the greater Washington area including Montgomery and Prince George’s counties in Maryland.
Chapter Coordinator:
Gary Berg-Cross

Our members cover the spectrum labeled  freethinkers, skeptics, secular humanists, non-theists, atheists, agnostics and the recent Nones or “not sure”.

Like other WASH chapters we  participate in a range of activities with other groups of like interests.

Meeting are  also announced on our Meetup page.

For general information about the MDC chapter, contact Gary Berg-Cross via email (gary@wash.org) or via phone (240-426-0770).

Please remember that WASH is a volunteer organization. Contributions of your time and money are the core of WASH’s ability to serve you, our membership. If you’re not already a member, please consider joining for $35, or at least becoming a friend of WASH for $10. If you have the means to provide financial support for WASH beyond the membership dues, your contributions help WASH engage in projects such as the following:

  • Printing of the Ingersoll Walk booklet (estimated cost: $300)
  • Upgrades for the next Ingersoll Oratory Contest to include rental of a tent, an improved PA system, and upgraded prizes for contestants (estimated cost: $2,000).
  • A project to make WASH generated videos available on YouTube (estimated cost: $500)
  • Support for student groups (estimated cost: $500)
  • Support for a fee-based speaker, such as professional interpreters of Jefferson (Steve Edenbo) or Madison, book authors, or others at a WASH event (estimated cost: $3,000)
  • Advertising campaigns such as billboards (estimated cost: $5,000)
