We have workshops coming up on important issues!
10/26: The Criminal In-Justice System (Jorge Mendez/Tony Jones)
Together, we will establish the essential connections between the three components of the Criminal In-Justice System, distinguish the inequities of the system, and propose what changes might be possible to achieve at the local and state level.
10/28: Understanding Power to Build Effective Campaigns (Amanda Dameron/Rachel Hefner)
How can we build power to make the changes we want to make? In this workshop we will define power, discuss the history of power, learn how to conduct a community power analysis, and discuss ways to build power for long-term movement work.

11/9: Environmental Justice in Virginia (Nik Belanger)

11/11: General Assembly 101 (Brian Johns/Zoom: Meghan McNamara)
Please join us to learn a little bit about how the General Assembly works in Virginia and also to explore some of Virginia Organizing state issue priorities in 2022 and beyond!
