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.
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 (firstname.lastname@example.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.
