2018 NAACP LOBBY DAY UPDATE

2018 NAACP Lobby Day Followup

VSC NAACP Leaders, Members, Community Partners & Friends,

We express a very special thanks to all who participated in the successful 2018 NAACP Lobby Day activity on Tuesday at the Virginia General Assembly.

Given the excitement among participants throughout the day, Legislators we connect with about key Bills, our solid presence in the House of Delegates Chamber to be introduced as members of Virginia State Conference NAACP and the highly visible presence of so many informed and knowledgeable NAACP members at the General Assembly, the day was a significant success.

For those who could not join us, we hope you will be able to be involved in the future. Remember, our 2019 VSC Lobby Day is scheduled for Tuesday, January 15th – always the Tuesday after MLK Day.

Again, thanks!
