Equality Virginia’s Lobby Day
Tuesday, January 24
Let’s get political.
I generally save the political rants/tirades for my personal blog. However, with the Iowa Caucuses over and the media buzz surrounding where the candidates stand on social issues, specifically gay rights, and Olivia Newton-John-themed shout out to the importance of being politically active is relevant.
Even if you don’t consider yourself “political” or are sick and tired of the politics of politics we are approaching a huge election year and our communities issues are stake. So, with that, here are a few things you can do to get involved.
First and foremost, get educated. The candidates that are coming forth as the front runners in this year’s election have clearly spelled out their agendas. Check out the websites of particular candidates of interest and see where they stand on the issues.
Next, get out, you don’t have to hit the ground running to promote specific candidates, but a good way to get involved is through Equality Virginia. On Tuesday January 24 at the Library of Virginia in Richmond Lobby Day 2012 will be held. Lobby Day is a great way to meet like-minded people and to reach out to delegates and senators in promoting pro-equality bills. For more information visit www.equalityvirginia.org. The Library of Virginia is located at 800 East Broad Street Richmond, VA.
