Ludwig Gaines departs Executive Director role at WABA

August 9, 2022

WABA announced today that Ludwig Gaines has resigned as WABA’s Executive Director, effective August 8, 2022. 

As Mr. Gaines departs to pursue other opportunities, we are grateful for his work to deepen WABA’s connections with other organizations in the region that will help us live out our commitment to transportation equity and social justice. Mr. Gaines represented WABA in coalition work with DC Families for Safe Streets and the Capital Trails Coalition, and he oversaw the development of WABA’s first-ever grant partnership with Howard—a project to daylight traffic safety challenges in DC’s most vulnerable wards. 

We are especially appreciative of Mr. Gaines’ work to build relationships with Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, which earned WABA an invitation to testify before the House Subcommittee on Highways and Transit, Transportation and Infrastructure on the critical need for structural changes to federal transportation priorities and funding to save the lives of pedestrians and cyclists. 

We wish Mr. Gaines success in his future endeavors.
