Washington, DC – DC Access, which is locally owned and operated by the husband-and- wife team of Matt Wade and Martha Huizenga, has joined Local First DC. The cornerstone of Local First DC is its ongoing “Think Local First” campaign, which informs consumers about the benefits of shopping at local, independent businesses in DC.

Local First DC, which is a project of the Latino Economic Development Corporation, is part of a national movement designed to promote small business owners. Think Local First campaigns have been implemented in cities and towns across the nation in collaboration with the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies, a nationwide network of more than 20,000 entrepreneurs dedicated to building strong local economies.

Wade and Huizenga operate DC Access out of their home on Capitol Hill and are committed to supporting and strengthening the community where they live and work.

“As small business owners and residents, we are committed to supporting locally owned businesses in our Capitol Hill neighborhood and throughout DC,” Huizenga says. “Participating in Local First DC reflects our core values as a small, locally owned business and is a great way to connect with other like-minded local business owners.”
