For Immediate Release: May 6, 2014
Charlottesville, Va.—Virginia Organizing released the statewide organization’s 2013 Annual Reporttoday, detailing the organizing work done across Virginia on various local, state, and national campaigns.
“Virginia Organizing is pleased to release our 2013 Annual Report,” said Virginia Organizing Chairperson Sandra A. Cook. “We are proud of the work that has been done by grassroots leaders in their communities. These campaigns were chosen because directly affected people in local communities have real life experience with policies enacted by those elected to represent us.”
“When we organize around immigration reform, we are organizing people whose lives have been touched by deportations and our broken immigration system. When we organize around hydrofracking in Washington County, we are represented by local people who are worried about the negative effects on their health and community,” said Cook. “These are real issues that affect real people and those people are stepping up to take action.”
