Welcome to the Washington Government Relations Group (WGRG).
For over a quarter century, the Washington Government Relations Group (WGRG) has been fortunate to serve as the premier organization dedicated to the professional enrichment of African-American government relations advocates. As a non-partisan, independent, volunteer association, our members represent a diverse cross section of corporations, financial institutions, law firms, trade associations and non-profit organizations on various policy matters in the state, federal, and international arena. The organization endeavors to increase dialogue between our members and key senior-level policy makers in an effort to foster meaningful public policy solutions. The WGRG works to facilitate both professional and social advancement amongst its membership through regularly scheduled programming and events that bring together stakeholders and key leaders from the public and private sectors. These individuals provide insight into the priorities and direction of officials and staff of the Administration, Congress and government agencies of interest.
As the non-profit charitable giving arm, the WGRG Foundation administers the Terri Grier Memorial Scholarship Program for African–American students pursuing undergraduate or graduate study in political science or public/government affairs. We welcome your engagement in WGRG and look forward to your active participation.
