CNAY is Moving!

The Aspen Institute is relocating its Washington, DC, headquarters, effective December 18, 2017.

Our new address will be:

Center for Native American Youth
The Aspen Institute
2300 N St., NW, #700
Washington, DC 20037-1122

Please update your contact information to ensure we receive your mail or deliveries without delay.

One note: If you plan to visit the office in person, the entrance to our building is actually at the corner of 24th and N. Public parking for a fee is available in the building; the garage is accessible from either 23rd or 24th streets. The closest Metro stops are Dupont Circle (Red Line) and Foggy Bottom (Blue/Orange/Silver lines). Each are about a 10-minute walk from the building.

All phone numbers and e-mail addresses will remain the same.

After several years split between two buildings at 1 Dupont Circle, NW, and 1333 New Hampshire Ave., NW, the Aspen Institute has simply outgrown its current space. The new offices will allow all DC-based Institute programs to be together in one building, and will feature collaborative workspaces, improved public event venues, and an aesthetic design in keeping with the modernist Bauhaus feel of the Institute's Aspen, Colorado, campus.

You can follow The Aspen Institute on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to see views from inside the new space as soon as we move in.
