Want a succinct summary of our fall semester? Look no further than our newsletter, posted below!
Our members had a very productive day today lobbying members of the General Assembly in Richmond! Some of the issues we spoke to legislators about include expanding rural access to broadband internet, and raising the felony threshold for larceny in the Commonwealth. We hope that the General Assembly will be able to pass laws this session that serve to advance a more just, equitable Commonwealth.
Today, members attended the inauguration of the commonwealth-wide officials we worked to elect. In his speech, Governor Northam articulated his goals for his term, and the manner in which he wants to go about tackling them. While there, we were lucky enough to see UVA's own Professor Larry Sabato. The weather may have been cold, but nothing could chill our optimism for the next four years!
