I want to invite you to Virginia Organizing’s Grassroots Gathering 2016 on September 16-18 at the Smith Mountain Lake Skelton 4-H Conference Center. You can click here to get more information and to register.
I know the problems we face all across the state — poverty, lack of access to health care, predatory lending, protecting our voting rights, and more. These are not things we can fix as individuals. We need to organize.
Whether you have a Chapter in your area or not, we can all be a part of the statewide organization and work to create change in our state. Will you join me at Grassroots Gathering 2016 to learn new skills and how to apply these skills to local and statewide work, meet new people, and learn from the successes and challenges facing other Chapters?
We are committed to working for a more just Virginia and we want you to be a part of that.
