Advocacy in Virginia 2020

Virginia's advocates do more than meets the eye. See the impact they made in 2020 when stay-at-home orders and widespread closures left many survivors of violence isolated or trapped at home.

Field of pink flowers with the words,

Leave a Legacy

What Legacy Will You Leave?

Your gifts to the Action Alliance reflect your values... a commitment to bravery, respect, and equity. Leaving an estate gift to the Action Alliance is one way to ensure your values last beyond your lifetime.

In the background, nighttime sky filled stars above mountain tops. In the foreground, the words imagine a radically hopeful future and take action to make it happen.

Building Thriving Communities

Civic Engagement is Advocacy Work

The future we dream of begins with just one conversation. Learn more with the Building Thriving Communities Toolkit.
