2018 Priority Issues Briefing Pages
Wage Theft/Worker Justice:
As with past years, VICPP will have a strong presence at the General Assembly when the 2018 session begins on Jan. 10. Perhaps this year our presence will be even stronger with an expanded “Witness at the Capitol” program.
“Witness at the Capitol” – Jan. 10 to March 10
Our “Witness at the Capitol” volunteers serve as faithful advocates/lobbyists on the VICPP issues during the 2018 legislative session, which will run from mid-January through March 10. Look for the folks in our royal blue stoles! The advocates will be the hands-on lobbyists for VICPP’s priority issues by:
Attending and reporting on hearings, markups and legislative events.
Meeting with legislators and their staff members.
Communicating the legislators’ position to the VICPP members in the districts.
Drafting background pieces and alerts for engaging the membership in the issues.
