Annual Empowerment Luncheon

Since 2007, N Street Village has hosted our annual Empowerment Luncheon to raise awareness related to women and poverty, homelessness, and health. All of you – the supporters of our mission and the ambassadors of our message – have made this spring event a highlight of our Village year.

Last year, we welcomed over 600 guests to hear our keynote speaker Oprah Winfrey, a global media leader, philanthropist, producer and actress, who spoke following the powerful and triumphant words of N Street Village resident Lolita Mitchell. Without a doubt, the Empowerment Luncheon of 2016 was phenomenal.

The best way – perhaps the only way – we have to transcend that experience is to honor our friend Ms. Winfrey who called out the heart of our mission by saying “N Street Village says to women: ‘We see you. We hear you. Your life matters.

Join us this year on June 15, 2017 at The Ritz-Carlton, Washington, D.C., as we celebrate women who matter with Voices of the Village 2017.

We will hear the words of some extraordinary women from our community whose life stories serve to educate and inform, and whose wisdom charts a path forward to empowerment for all.

Tickets are now available online! For more information, including sponsorship opportunities, please download our Sponsorship packet and contact Stuart Allen at or 202.939.2085.
