TEDxPearlStreet is Washington DC's largest TEDx event, a platform for exceptional ideas, and a catalyst for change since 2019. We are a 100% volunteer-led non-profit organization.
Our mission is to spread ideas, build community, and change lives across the Washington DC metropolitan area, and the world. Throughout the year, our over 50 dedicated volunteers bring this mission to life through our flagship events and community programs.
Created in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading," the TEDx program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level.
