Optional Office Visits – General Assembly Welcome Back Party
January 9, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
In 2019 our General Assembly celebrates 400 years of legislative deliberation in Virginia.
Let’s kick off that celebration in style by welcoming back our Virginia legislators! This is not a lobbying day, just a day of “welcome back” and “thank you for being our elected officials.”
Our goal is for 400+ Virginians to celebrate the day by gathering between the Pocahontas building and Bank Street entrance to the Capitol to smile + wave + cheer our legislators on their first day back to work.
We will also host a party in the afternoon for those willing / able to stay.
Please sign-up at VAratifyERA.org/ga2019 and bring a car of your friends & neighbors to the #generalassembly opening day!
Schedule for January 9th:
* Optional check-in @Pocahontas building
If desired, take “welcome back” notes/gifts/cookies to legislators in their offices at
900 E Main Street – the Pocahontas Building (anytime from 9-11 AM)
* Gather between the Pocahontas building and the Bank St entrance to the Capitol to smile + clap + cheer our legislators on their first day back at work (10 AM)
* Observe the Senate/House from the Gallery (12 PM)
