“Mobilizing for Advocacy” – LWV CVA Sunday Seminar, January 19, 2020, CitySpace Downtown Mall.
In this day and age, all of us must exercise our citizen duties and become engaged in the workings of our democracy! Join us on Sunday, January 19, at CitySpace on the Downtown Mall. Doors open at 1:30 pm for “Meet and Greet” and the Meeting will begin promptly by 2 pm.
January brings challenges to keep up with all the activities of our state legislative session—especially this 2020! Many of you have been working hard this past year advocating for the passage of meaningful legislation addressing our many concerns, in particular, the proposed Constitutional Amendment on redistricting; the passage of the Equal Rights Amendment; the passage of meaningful gun rights legislation; justice reform legislation; and environmental concerns. There is proposed legislation on the removal of monuments that will affect how Charlottesville and Albemarle County deal with this difficult issue.
Now is the time for all League members to learn how you as an individual can contact state legislators and let them know what bills you want them to support! Come to our “training session” on how you can do this! We will review and show you how to access the Legislative Information System (LIS) so that you can follow the passage of bills through the General Assembly. We will explain how our LWV CVA league will send you “Action Alerts” and what this means. You can be proactive sitting right at your home computer!
Want to meet with your legislators in person? Find out about the state League’s Women’s Legislative Roundtable (WLRT) which meets every Wednesday in Richmond for the months that the General Assembly is in session.
