Women’s Legislative Roundtable (WLRT)
Every year during the General Assembly session, LWV-VA provides a nonpartisan forum open to the public on Wednesdays, 8:30-9:30 a.m., to discuss and share information on issues and legislation.
Legislators are invited to discuss bills they are sponsoring and answer questions. Leaders of nonprofit groups share their priority issues. LWV-VA lobbyists and Issue Group Leaders give updates on LWV-VA priority issues.
This year, you can attend in person or virtually. In-person meetings will be held at the Tidewater Room in the SunTrust Center, 919 East Main Street, Richmond. You must be fully vaccinated to attend in person.

Local League presidents will be setting up meetings with members of the General Assembly for League Day. Contact your local League president to join one of these meetings. When you RSVP you will have a choice to mark how you will attend. We hope to see you in whatever form is easiest for you but an in-person visit makes the biggest impact.
