Diversely-Owned Businesses:

Washington, D.C.

ALA's Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services has compiled a selection of minority, women, and LGBTQ-owned businesses that attendees may wish to explore while in Washington, D.C. for the 2019 ALA Annual Conference. We have focused primarily on places in close geographic proximity to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center so this is not an exhaustive list of the city's diversely-owned businesses. You can click on each of the blue pins to learn more about each business including directions.

Several other resources that may be of interest include the Washington, D.C. Chamber of Commerce, and the Official Tourism Site of Washington, D.C.

If there is a business or organization you think we should add to our map, please e-mail your suggestion to diversity@ala.org. The information gathered below was compiled from Intentionalist, the DC Beacon, and the Washingtonian.
