HISTORY: From 1990 – 1997, the Metro DC Environmental Network (MetNet) provided connectivity to the region's environmental and justice activists through a monthly calendar, monthly EcoJustice Coffeehouses, a broadcast fax system, and annual regional Earth Day events.

MetNet 2.0 will recycle the best of the old MetNet as follows:

MONTHLY ECO/JUSTICE CAFÉS: are held on the First Fridays of each month at the UDC Firebird Inn. They are intended to build understanding, friendship, community and cooperation among area activists.

THE NEW ON-LINE CALENDAR: will provide the region's most comprehensive listing of social justice and environmental events. The Calendar will be "rolled out" in Spring 2009.

AN ONLINE RESOURCE CENTER will access Washington area residents to local and regional information they need to act on their environmental and social values. The Resource Center will be built out in stages in the coming months.

VOLUNTEER EDITORS are sought for sections of the Resource Center . Editors will collect and maintain a section of the database and, in return, will be granted control that area's "home page" where they can write or choose articles to post, manage a forum, and highlight their favorite resources. These will be serious and demanding – but highly rewarding – positions.

STRUCTURE: MetNet 2.0 is currently a project of the DC School of Law Foundation and can accept tax exempt contributions at It is preparing to file for its own 501 (c) (3) status with the help of the UDC David A. Clarke School of Law Community Development Clinic.
