Speaker of the House, Kirk Cox, and his Privileges and Elections Committee Chair, Mark Cole, need to see how important this issue is for Virginians. This is a critical, high-visibility, family-friendly day – please come down with your friends, neighbors and family to show your support! Check out the Facebook event here.

We plan to go through security in the Capitol and line the halls indoors as the weather will be cold. Bring your kids – the Capitol has a cafe and exhibits to explore.

We’ll also have a press conference that day and would love to have lots of supporters in the room.

Upcoming General Assembly days to add to your calendar: Monday, January 28th and Monday, February 4th!
