Advocacy Days

The 400th Virginia General Assembly kicked off on January 9, 2019. Advocates, community leaders, and passionate citizens are heading to the Virginia State Capitol to make their case with legislators. You can help support a cause or policy by joining one of these organizations on their Advocacy Days. It takes many committed citizens raising up their voice to bring about change!
