Our regional chapters work at the grassroots level, drawing more voices to the call to advocacy. Getting involved with a local chapter is a great way to keep up with everything that is going on and help expand the Center’s impact with fun and interactive programs.
With support from the Center, chapters organize to meet with legislators in their home districts to inform them of the key policy priorities of the Center and ask that they be champions for progress.
Throughout the year, chapter members collaborate with the Center to put together educational programs including film screenings, panels, and speaker series. These programs increase community engagement and further educate the public about Center policy priority issues that impact low-income, vulnerable, and underrepresented communities in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Fun and Fellowship
Chapter members get together throughout the year to fellowship and share in the spirit of social justice. Events include coffee hours, letter-writing sessions, and house parties.
We currently have five regional chapters and two “affiliated groups” across the Commonwealth and invite you to become a part of the local grassroots efforts in your community! (We’re hoping to add a new chapter in Charlottesville soon!) Contact our chapter chairs listed below to see how you can get involved.
