Thank you so much to the many people who said they’ll attend or reach out to their representatives otherwise. Over the weekend some more information came out on the day, so I’m including those links below. The Toolkit is a great resource for using social media to have an impact if you can’t join in person.
It will be challenging to be together as a group, but The Arc of Virginia is bringing up a bus from Richmond and they’ll all be wearing a blue t-shirt with The Arc logo on it. The best advice I can give is to find the blue shirts if you want to be with other VA advocates. No matter what, you will be among advocates and immediate friends there. The people attending all are supporting Medicaid and people with disabilities and will all be happy to have you. It should be an energizing and empowering day!
