What a fantastic hearing yesterday! We have so many people to thank. First, many thanks to Erin, Corey, Brooke, and David, who are all incredibly powerful speakers. You all are talented with unique stories to share and you could see the wheels turning in the heads of legislators as you spoke. Thank you to Rikki, Ron, and Lisa for braving the cold darkness to help hold places in line! And many, many thanks to the amazing crew of supporters who joined us today. I can’t say enough what an impact it makes to have a group of that size show support for our speakers. The legislators certainly took notice!
Here are some photos from today.
In case you’re bitten by the advocacy bug, let me know if you’d like to join us again on Saturday January 5th (also wearing red, stickers, and holding signs) in Fairfax from 9:30-10:30 AMish as we have some wonderful speakers talk before the entire Fairfax delegation at the Government Center.
We’d also love anyone who’d like to come along this Friday to the Arlington County Board room at 2100 Clarendon Blvd. from 5-6 PM to hear our speakers that night.
