Groundwork for The Washington County Black Professionals Network (WCBPN) began in June 2022 out of the efforts of HARC’s Racial Justice Team with the intention of creating a separate member-based organization led by and for Black professionals in Washington County, Maryland. HARC is providing a “backbone” of support for the WCBPN, with all leadership and directives coming from the WCBPN Directors.
