The vote is the most powerful instrument ever devised by man for breaking down injustice and destroying the terrible walls which imprison men because they are different from other men.
-Lyndon B. Johnson
This year is an election year for the state of Virginia. On November 2nd, Virginia residents will have the opportunity to vote for U.S. House of Representatives.
One of Virginia Organizing’s missions is working to increase turnout in communities of color, low-income communities and college campuses while improving civic engagement by identifying, training and motivating more local leaders. There is a lot at stake this election: the health care law, Wall Street reform and tax cuts for the middle class and not the wealthy.
YOU can make a difference by exercising your right to vote!
