Location + Travel Info

About Eaton DC

Eaton DC is Eaton Workshop’s flagship location in downtown Washington DC. It is inspired by the historic movements that made the world a better place, from the suffragettes to the Women’s March, from civil rights to today’s climate change movement. Our design, which references the history of the building as a bus terminal and printing press, evokes the nostalgia of an analog era while presenting a green and culture-filled sanctuary on K Street. A custom-designed sculpture acknowledges the indigenous land Eaton DC is built on, while the naming of its rooms honors Black histories of DC. Eaton DC offers a cinema, radio station, library, holistic wellness center, members workspace, music venue rooftop bar, literary bar, exhibition space, a creator’s room, event spaces, restaurant, and coffee shop.

Major Airports

COVID-19 Policy

The health and safety of the WFN community, including staff and participants is important to us. We recognize the impact of COVID-19 is ongoing and the importance of communicating our approach and sharing resources to inform your decision-making around health and safety. Our approach is driven by the policies of our host country, the size and scale of our event, and the reality of vaccine inequity globally.

At this time, we are following the guidelines set out by the U.S., and local D.C. government. While we will take preventative measures – such as providing masks and access to hand sanitizer – to reduce the spread of COVID-19, we are not able to guarantee that participants who choose to attend in person will not be exposed to the virus while attending the event. We strongly advise participants to take all precautions based on their health conditions and personal circumstances.

Our Local Community Hosts

Meet the local hosts who are partnering with us in the planning of this event.

VidaAfrolatina Logo


VidaAfrolatina is an emerging international women’s fund that mobilizes resources and connects them with Black and Afro-descendant women-led organizations in Latin America that address sexual violence. Selected through a participatory process, these organizations provide culturally relevant healing experiences in their communities and launch initiatives to reduce and, ultimately, eliminate sexual violence. We proudly amplify the vision, wisdom, power and leadership of our grantee partners. Without investment in Black women’s solutions for their own communities, the structural, intersectional issues that perpetuate sexual violence will continue on largely unabated and ignored. VidaAfrolatina strives to fill a void in resources to strengthen and expand the work of Black and Afro-descendant women’s organizations.

Lori Robinson (she/her) is the founder and executive director of VidaAfrolatina. A bilingual African American, she worked as a journalist for 25 years covering sexual violence in Black communities in Latin American countries. She is one of 35 fellows selected from a pool of more than 2,800 applicants from 155 countries to win a coveted Echoing Green Fellowship to develop and launch VidaAfrolatina.
