General Assembly Welcome Back Party
January 9, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 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)
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:
* 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)
* Party for parity (3-5PM) — more info coming soon
