What we do
The Center for Local Policy Analysis (CLPA) provides information about local policy, political candidates, the legislative process, and government agencies and institutions to residents of the Washington Metropolitan Area so they can become better advocates for themselves and their community. The work we do at CLPA aims to provide an approachable, fact-based, non-partisan method to both policymaking and some of our community's biggest challenges.

CLPA highlights key statements, decisions, and votes in the various legislative bodies around the Washington Metropolitan Area. During election season, we profile candidates running for office and their policy proposals.
“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”
