Citizens for a Better City (CBC) was founded in 1959 in order to establish a first-class school system in our newly independent City and to identify quality candidates for City Council and School Board and help them seek election.


Today we are no longer in the campaign business, choosing instead to focus on community issues, supporting quality schools & city services and maintaining our independence as the Little City.

Thursday, February 9 at 7:30 pm in the Meridian High School Library

The Falls Church League of Women Voters will be hosting a Question-and-Answer session concerning proposed zoning changes for Transitional Areas or “T-Zones.”  The Falls Church Division of Planning will make a 20-minute presentation on the proposed changes, followed by an opportunity for the audience to ask questions or make recommendations to the City officials.


Sunday, February 12, 2:00 pm at the Community Center

AAUW - Falls Church invites you to a presentation by Holly Hazard, co-founder of 4 Public Education, who will present A Clear and Present Danger: The Strategy to Take Down Public Education in America. She will explain the risk and the strategy of 4 Public Education and steps each of us can take to remediate the threat. The program is free and open to all.

4 Public Education is a grass-roots advocacy group formed in response to the sometimes harsh and emotionally charged criticism and disruptive antics at school board meetings. The group aims to promote the values and ideals of public education in America, believing that exceptional public education is the cornerstone of a healthy democracy.

CBC Honors Debbie Hiscott with a 2023 Shout Out Award

In recognition of her exceptional contributions to our Little City, having just recently reached the ten-year milestone serving as the Executive Director of the Falls Church Education Foundation. During this time, she has overseen the development and implementation of innovative programs that have greatly benefitted Falls Church City Public Schools students, teachers, and staff and the community at large. Examples of her remarkable achievements abound, but two stand out: the Super Grants Program, which has funded hundreds of teacher training, professional development, and innovative classroom activities; and, the Family Assistance Fund which, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, has raised more than $200,00 to support hundreds of students and families in need.
