If the world seems cold to you, kindle fires to warm it.  ~Lucy Larcom

The 15th Anniversary Celebration of the Virginia Organizing Project will be held in Richmond on Saturday, August 7th, one month from today. Join us as people from across the state gather to recognize grassroots organizing achievements of the past 15 years!

The South Hampton Roads chapter of the VOP, as well as members of all VOP chapters throughout Virginia are ecstatic about this event. For 15 years, the VOP has addressed issues of social  injustice by supporting and empowering those in need. Not only are we eager to celebrate our past accomplishments and how far we have come, but it is events like this that have the potential to inspire future change in our state, and hopefully even our nation. We are excited to host an event that will bring a diverse group of people together, not just leaders and members of the various VOP chapters in Virginia, but as everyday citizens. Yes, you are invited to our celebration, and would be considered a special guest!  Previous participation in a VOP event is not necessary. We just want to welcome anyone who has an interest the issues we are devoted to in Virginia, such as health care, tax reform, jobs, immigration, with open arms.  Spending this Saturday with us at the VOP will present the opportunity to gather with your fellow Virginia community and be a part of the VOP’s legacy.
