More about the 2020 Day of Action:

With your support in 2019, Equality Virginia highlighted the importance of anti-discrimination bills during the General Assembly.  With your help, all throughout the year, we have been sending in postcards written by you to tell the Speaker of the House that it is time to pass these important laws. In an historic election, you helped change the leadership of the House of Delegates. We can now capitalize on this, not only ensuring the defeat of any law that discriminates against LGBT Virginians, but also ensure that the House of Delegates passes the same protections that have passed the Senate every year since 2015.

The Day of Action is all about empowering LGBT and allied Virginians to create positive change, meet legislators and discuss bills important to the LGBT community, and attend workshops hosted by some of the area’s top attorneys and fellow activists. The day ends with a festive Legislative Reception, where we are joined by a number of legislators for LGBT equality and others who have made our issues their priority. Click here to register.

Legislative Reception

Following our Day of Action, we celebrate with an evening reception to thank our volunteers and membership and to recognize supportive General Assembly members. We hope that you will join us for this unique opportunity to mingle with Virginia’s legislators and other supporters of LGBT equality. Hors d’oeuvres and light refreshments will be served. This is a free event open to the public, but advanced registration is required. If you plan to only attend the Legislative Reception and not the Day of Action, please register separately here.
