Take Action! Visit Your Elected Officials
The League of Women Voters of the Fairfax Area (LWVFA) recommitted itself to action and advocacy by creating a new Action Committee this Spring. As a result, we are looking for our members willing to visit with their elected officials. Our key advocacy priorities are:
- Redistricting reform,
- Voting and elections,
- Behavioral health
- Gun violence prevention
Please sign up for a visit with your elected official (you can verify your officials on VOTE411.org) -- we will coordinate the teams. If you already have a team, that works as well. Ideally, visits will be made in groups of two to three individuals. At least one person should be a constituent, but others may accompany them.
After signing up to visit your elected official, the Action co-chairs, Wendy Fox-Grage and Deb Wake, will contact you with further guidance.
We will provide you with discussion points and material to leave behind, including our new brochure: Educate, Advocate, Impact. Our September 2018 program delves further into our priorities.
These are friendly meetings to inform elected officials what topics/issues are important to the League and to find out what topics/issues are important to our law makers.
Please sign up here.
Questions? Please contact Wendy Fox-Grage email@example.com or Deb Wake firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are not a constituent but would like to contact an official, please let us know that, too, and we we work with you.
