After all, no one knows the community better than the people who live in it. We need your voices and your talents for what lies ahead, and there is a lot at stake in Virginia.

 

A few perks of our Pop-Up:

1. A full day of local organizing training

2. The chance to network with local community leaders

3. Breakfast and lunch
