Women's Legislative Roundtable (WLRT)

This informational forum is where legislators and other non-profit organizations talk about pending legislation and issues of concern.

Introduction

WLRT Logo Sessions are sponsored and moderated by the League of Women Voters of Virginia (LWV-VA). WLRT meetings are held at 8:30 AM every Wednesday during the Virginia General Assembly Session, starting the Wednesday after the General Assembly convenes in January.

Meetings traditionally have been held on Capitol Square at the General Assembly Building. See the LWV-VA Calendar Tab for 2015 WLRT dates and location. Below are past reports from each week's WLRT meeting and other information, organized by General Assembly Session year. Reports from years before 2012 are included in the Archives sub-section of this page. League positions on legislation, if any, are included in the Action/Advocacy section of this website. To learn more about the roundtable, read LWV-VA's brochure.

In preparation for the WLRTs, the LWV-VA holds an annual Pre-Session Women's Legislative Roundtable early in December, preceding following year's General Assembly Session, to provide a look ahead at the anticipated issues that will arise. Networking with activists and many advocacy groups is one of the top reasons given for attending. A full morning of five-minute power speeches from issue experts who have been on the front lines during General Assembly sessions will preview, predict, and prepare League members and others for action in January.
