Virginia Organizing does not plan to stop this momentum. I'm sure you've received all our invitations to the annual Grassroots Gathering happening this Saturday, August 10 at the Robins School of Business at University of Richmond (1 Gateway Road, University of Richmond, VA 23173, please note that this is a slight change in location on the U of R campus).
The Grassroots Gathering is a time to learn more about organizing and the direction of Virginia Organizing for the rest of the year. You are not going to want to miss this.
The best part is, there's still time to register! Contact Nik Belanger at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
I hope you enjoy reading our 2013 Mid-Year Report and that you plan to attend the annual Grassroots Gatherings. I can't wait to see you there!
