I refused to take the breath test when I was stopped in VA and was found guilty. So I have a suspended license for one full year. But from what I read it only works that way because I had a VA license. My lease is expiring in one month and moving to DC. Can I get a DC driver's license or the suspension will carry over there too?
The way things should work when it comes to the different state DMV agencies and the way that they actually do work are often quite different. It might be a good idea to just apply for a new license in DC. Good luck.

I agree with Mr. Nielsen.
The Interstate Compact signed by the various states (and DC) should mean that Virginia's suspension of your license will cause DC to refuse to grant you a license. But bureaucracies being what they are, you may want to apply anyway.
But don't drive in Virginia!
