5 Actions

Suggested actions this week


  1. Call Your Senator: Tell them not to support this tax scam. It harms heath care for 13 million Americans and raises taxes on millions of middle-class families to give money to billionaires and corporations. One number gets you to both Senators: 844-241-1141.

  2. RSVP to our next MotherBoard Meeting on 11/30. Brain Cannon from OneVirginia2021 joins us to talk about next steps in Redistricting Reform. We'll discuss lessons learned and what we should tackle next.

  3. Tell Norfolk Mayor and City Council Members to reject the bid for easements on City of Norfolk-owned property in Suffolk for the construction of a natural gas pipeline.

    We got it done in Norfolk, now let's make it happen in Virginia Beach and Portsmouth. Click the links below to sign petitions urging the Mayors of both cities to join the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy:
