When you donate to Virginia Organizing, you know that your money is being used to change the lives of people like Catherine Fitzgerald of Danville, who wrote, “With the challenges we face today, it gives me hope to know that there is a group out there that is concerned about people’s rights — not just one group of people fighting for itself, but all people coming together to demand equality. That’s what makes Virginia Organizing special!”
Your gift has lasting benefits for future generations. For example, because of gifts from people like you and working with a variety of people in each community, we’ve organized to ban the criminal history question from job applications in localities and in the state of Virginia to give returning citizens a fair shot at a second chance.
Virginia Organizing celebrated 20 years in 2015 and our work will continue for a long time to come.
You’ll also feel pretty great on Friday afternoon knowing that your alternative gift will help Virginians organize while other shoppers are fighting Black Friday fatigue.
