LWV-VA Holds “Women’s Legislative Roundtable” on Wednesdays during Virginia’s General Assembly!

Jan 13, 2021

Every year during the General Assembly session, LWV-VA provides a nonpartisan forum open to the public on Wednesday mornings to discuss and share information on issues and legislation. 

Legislators are invited to discuss bills they are sponsoring and answer questions. Leaders of nonprofit groups are welcome to talk about their priority issues.  LWV-VA lobbyists and Issue Group Leaders give updates on LWV-VA priority issues.

This year we will meet via Zoom. The General Assembly session is only four weeks this year, so we will have four meetings. Click here to register to receive the Zoom link for the WLRTs. Please note that topics for WLRTs are subject to change.
