Act Now

Every week, Virginia Organizing posts concrete steps so you can take timely and important action! Tips to making your action effective: be polite but firm (don’t yell or curse or get angry); give your name and where you are from; tell whoever answers the phone what your concern is and why; ask for the official position on your issue; and remember, the person answering the phone is not elected and is just doing his or her job..

Don’t forget, you can connect with a local chapter to work for social, racial, economic, environmental, and gender justice at the local level. Email us at info@virginia-organizing.org so we can help you connect to one of our community organizers.

Our Priorities for 2024:

In 2024, Virginia Organizing will focus on supporting proposed constitutional amendments for the automatic restoration of voting rights and reproductive freedom. Additionally, our priorities include:

  • Affordable housing and tenant protections
  • Funding for mental health treatment instead of criminalization
  • Protection from utility shutoffs and high energy costs
  • Affordable child care and higher wages for providers
  • Equitable school funding
  • Extending Medicaid coverage to all children, regardless of immigration status

Please contact your state senator and delegate and ask them to support these priorities. You can find them at this link.

Throughout the session we will also be updating our priorities with bills that we support. Keep track of our progress with this document. We can win many of these priorities this year if we work together and make our power visible in Richmond.
