2017 Annual Meeting and Awards Celebration
The Virginia Interfaith Center for Public Policy’s Annual Fundraising Dinner and Awards Celebration will be held on Thursday night, Dec. 7, at the Robinson Theater Community Arts Center in Church Hill (2903 Q St, Richmond, VA 23223). It will be an evening of good food, good company and celebration.
The annual event will include faith, government and community leaders from throughout the Commonwealth who care about issues that impact the lives of lower-income Virginians. The Center has done some amazing work this year. We’ve revitalized grassroots advocacy on Rapid Response Networks to respond to attacks on immigrants, Muslims and others, hosted wage theft forums to educate people about the crisis of wage theft, is starting a Living Wage Certification program in Richmond, Alexanderia and Charlottesville, has explored ways congregations can offer community service options, launched a new “Faith Advocacy Partner” program to better connect with congregations and other faith communities, started a “Witness at the Capitol” team to better increase our participation with the General Assembly, and developed stronger connections with interfaith chapters across the state.
We will again have Sponsorships available and a Silent Auction at the event to help with our fundraising, and will honor individuals and groups for their work to support social justice.
