At the Pre-Session Women’s Legislative Roundtable, directors and advocacy experts from many nonprofit organizations come to speak about their priority issues and legislation, and give their predictions on what may or may not happen during the 2020 General Assembly Session.
Virginia Secretary of Finance will be the first speaker to share his insights on the priorities and challenges of Governor Northam’s administration. After he speaks, about 20 speakers will each have about 5 to 7 minutes each to share their legislative priorities and concerns in the upcoming Session. Some areas that will be covered by the speakers are elections, voting rights, transparency in government, education, women’s rights, gun violence prevention & public safety, healthcare, juvenile justice, transportation, and environmental issues.
This annual meeting in December informs and prepares us to visit our own legislators in home districts even before the General Assembly convenes in January. This event, in addition to providing a lot of good information, also provides opportunities to meet with and network with others who share similar interests and concerns.
Please join us at the LWV-VA Pre-Session on December 4, and join us in preparing for advocacy and action in the 2020 General Assembly Session!
