5 Actions

Suggested actions this week

  1. Show Up!
    Our September monthly meeting is tomorrow. We will be trained and certified for voter registration, learn how to effectively share Redistricting Reform information with voters and learn about how to volunteer for a campaign. RSVP here for the September 21st meeting at Slover Library, 7 p.m., Downtown Norfolk.

  2. Attend!
    Civic responsibility begins with voting, but it doesn’t end there. Elected officials need to hear your concerns, and collaborating with others makes your voice stronger. Organized by the Legislative Collaborative Table, a coalition of nineteen local organizations, this Social Justice University event prepares attendees for group visits with their delegates to the General Assembly. If you care about non-discrimination, redistricting, Medicaid expansion, rising sea level, funding public transit, or criminal justice reform, come to this free, action-oriented briefing session on Sunday, September 24, 2:30-5:00 p.m., at the Unitarian Church of Norfolk, 739 Yarmouth Street, Norfolk. Let us know you are going - here!
