Calling all Power Movers to our monthly artful networking event that features: a live performance, an art auction, an atmosphere of networking and fellowship, as we acknowledge notable people of color who live, work, and play in Prince George’s County or the DC Metropolitan area. We have our finger on the pulse of the progressive professional.
Come to discuss your latest projects and make new connections with artists, culture keepers, politicians, and cross-disciplinary practitioners. We encourage your to bring your business cards & any other information you'd like to share.
We give respect and honor to the people paving the way for the region, celebrating
those who have shown outstanding impact or influence. The PG Power Mover will be honored during the event and speak to the audience about their past, present and future power moves.

The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) is a bi-county agency serving Prince George's and Montgomery counties in Maryland with parks, recreation, and planning. M-NCPPC's Department of Parks and Recreation in Prince George's County provides quality recreation programs, facilities, and services for residents and visitors. We also operate and maintain more than 27,000 acres of parkland throughout the county, including land developed to provide parks, picnic areas, athletic fields, historic sites, community centers, and recreation facilities. In an effort to maintain the county's natural beauty, a large percentage of the land has been left undeveloped to serve as buffers and to provide natural open spaces.
