Christine Warnke Honored by D.C. Council

Dr. Christine M. Warnke was recognized and honored in a ceremonial resolution, sponsored by  Council member Anita Bonds "for her continued advocacy and philanthropy to Washington, D.C., and its people." 

The Council of the District of Columbia listed the many achievements of Warnke, "a native Washingtonian and lifelong resident of the District of Columbia, born to Greek immigrants."

She was honored during Women's History Month and in honor of the many Greek Americans celebrating the 200th anniversary of Greece's independence.

"I am most grateful to Council member Anita Bonds and all of the D.C. Council for this special recognition," Warnke said. "Growing up in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area gave me such a unique understanding of the value for respect of all citizens of the world."

Warnke's impressive civic resume includes the D.C. Commission for Women under the patronage of Mayor Anthony Williams and the late Mayor Marion Barry; the D.C. Commission on Human Rights; the D.C. Humanities Commission and currently the D.C. Real Estate Commission.

Also, Warnke was elected and served with distinction as an Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner for ANC3D in the Wesley Heights neighborhood. She served on the Democratic National Committee and currently serves as a member of the D.C. Democratic State Committee and of the Ward Three Democratic Committee.

Warnke was appointed by President William Clinton to serve on the Kennedy Center Presidential Advisory Board and has served on the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of African Art.

A member of the Board of Directors of Sister Cities, Warnke is the founder of the Wilbert E. Warnke Homeless Veterans Foundation and co-author of "The Urban Odyssey," a book on ethnic immigration to Washington, D.C., in the early 20th century.

The resolution is cited as the "Dr. Christine Warnke Ceremonial Recognition Resolution of 2021."
