★ 2019 Activities
Helped support HD & SD candidates around the state by providing online profiles, slates, date and other info via VirginiaGrassroots.org website. Continued to organize Lobby Days at Senator Warner's Tysons district office.
Decided to support other groups, rather than running our own canvass and phonebank. Set up new website with election info and materials for the Virginia Grassroots Coalition. Took over organizing of existing weekly/then monthly discussion group at Warner Tysons District Office.
After 2016 election, started our group with the name Fairfax Grassroots. Set up a Facebook discussion group, a website, fairfaxgrassroots.org with lists of progressive organizations, calendars of events, and info on issues. (Later changed name of the website to NOVAgrassroots.org, but too late to change Facebook group name.) Sponsored a phone bank for candidates all over Virginia at FCDC "after hours", working with Coordinated Campaign.
