2021 Virginia Legislative Session:  The General Assembly session for 2021 begins on Wednesday, January 13, and runs for 30 days. On December 2, 2020, the League of Women Voters of Virginia held a “Pre-Session Roundtable” to review the potential challenges and opportunities in legislation this session.

On Wednesdays during the GA Session, the League hosts an hour-long morning briefing by Legislators and/or Advocacy/Issue groups (WLRT Women’s Legislative Roundtable Meetings). Thus, we get updates on legislation throughout the Session so that our advocacy messages are very timely. League members can attend on Wednesdays by virtual zoom registration.  Go to the WLRT page on the LWV-VA website:  https://lwv-va.org/womens-legislative-round-table/

To learn more about the Roundtable, read LWV-VA’s brochure.
