Legislative Advocacy Day
Each winter, advocates, survivors, and activists from around the state gather in Richmond, VA to speak up for survivor rights and policies that support healthy and thriving relationships and communities. Each and every voice is important. We encourage you to join us in person or advocate by email, phone, and social media as we inform legislators about the issues that matter most to survivors and advocates statewide!
Our last Legislative Advocacy Day was held on February 2, 2023. Learn more on our Legislative Advocacy Day page.
