Our meeting will once again be virtual at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 13. 

Rasoul and McClellan are part of a field that will be decided in a primary on June 8.

Since he was first elected to the House of Delegates in 2014, Rasoul has fought for the people of Virginia by rejecting special interest PAC donations, starting the Impact Center initiative to help empower new age leaders, and modeling a new approach to politics through his Democratic Promise initiative, which builds goodwill by connecting our neighbors in need to government services that can help. From speaking out against fracked gas pipelines we don’t need, to voting against ratepayer ripoffs, to passing legislation that expands health care access, Sam has been showing up for communities across Virginia fighting for justice and he will continue lifting up voices across the commonwealth as Lieutenant Governor. He lives in his hometown, Roanoke, with his spouse, Layaly, and their three children. For more, visit sam4va.com.

Andria McClellan currently serves more than 125,000 Virginians in her role as a Norfolk City Council member, in addition to representing the 1.7 million people of the Hampton Roads region as the Chair of the Hampton Roads Planning District Commission. With more than two decades of business, non-profit, environmental and local government leadership experience, she is ready to put her knowledge, network and innovative ideas to work to help Virginia's economy and people recover from the COVID pandemic as the Commonwealth's first female Lieutenant Governor.

Our (Virtual) June 13 Meeting Looks at Racism

Former Vice President Joe Biden calls racism an "open wound" in America. He's right, of course; the wound and accompanying scars extend to every corner of the country, including Hanover County.

Join us at our remote monthly meeting at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 13, when we'll explore the issue. Our featured speaker will be Robert Barnette, president of the NAACP for Hanover and the Commonwealth of Virginia. He will give us an update on the lawsuit with the school board over the names of Confederates that still hang on the outside of our public schools.

As you may remember, the School Board voted 5-2 against dropping the names of Lee-Davis High School and Stonewall Jackson Middle School. The discussion promises to be both timely and informative.
