2005 will be a pivotal year for Democrats in Virginia. Not only must we make sure Virginia has a Democratic governor, lieutenant governor, and attorney general, but all 100 seats in the Virginia House are up for grabs. Democracy for Virginia believes that grassroots activists can make a significant positive impact in these races.
In order to organize Democracy for Virginia so we will be most effective this year and beyond, DFV leaders have worked with leaders from DC for Democracy and Democracy for Maryland at the behest of Democracy for America to organize a Regional Caucus this Saturday. Please come!
Saturday, February 26
George Washington University’s Elliott School of International Affairs
1957E Street, NW, Suite 611 (Near Foggy Bottom Metro)
10:00 AM to 4:30 PM
Interested Virginians should attend this caucus to:
- Participate in planning and structuring of Democracy for Virginia
- Learn hands-on details of what works and doesn’t work in building membership in grassroots organizations, funding them, field operations and what legal structures are possible;
- Create a loose caucus of Virginia, Maryland, and Distinct grassroots organizations that will coordinate their efforts and help channel additional resources into local races.
More information including working agenda and directions available below the jump. We hope you will attend!
