We hope to see you at as many of the issue lobby days as you can attend. As you know, numbers matter on these occasions.
Unique Lobby Days:
Gun Violence Prevention: January 19
Equal Rights Amendment: January 21
Pro-Choice Day of Action: January 22, Anniversary of Roe v. Wade
Health Care For All Virginians: January 28
Regular Advocacy Events/Discussions
The League of Women Voters Round-table — Wednesday’s 8:30-9:30 am, Senate Conference Room – 3rd Floor West.
On Ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment:
House of Delegates Privileges & Elections Cmte. — Friday, 9:30 A.M. – Appropriations Room.
Senate Privileges & Elections Cmte. — Tuesday, 4:00 P.M. – Senate Room A.
These dates are important because it’s good to regularly remind these committees that we want the ERA Ratification Bill to go to the floor for a public vote. All Virginia’s legislators should take the opportunity to stand proudly for their position on women’s civil rights and economic opportunity.
For regular updates on the Equal Rights Amendment: Virginia ERA Network.
And, let’s be real, we can’t all make these dates. So, if you have the time to do a little online advocacy, you can review our legislative agenda here, and find the representatives you want to contact here. Also, here’s an easy way to contact just your own representatives.
Thanks for pitching in, now and every time you do.
