VACOLAO’s Virtual Immigrant Advocacy Day

WHAT: We are excited to invite you to the upcoming 2021 Virtual Virginia Immigrant Advocacy Day at the 2021 Virginia General Assembly. We will be organizing virtual appointments to speak with Virginia elected representatives on bills important to immigrant communities residing in the Commonwealth. This year, we are looking at legislation to expand privacy protections for Virginia driver privilege card holders (HB 2163), expand education equity by making all in-state tuition holders eligible for financial assistance (state grants/financial aid) at both public and private universities (HB 2123), and allow non-driver’s to receive a Virginia state identity card regardless of their immigration status (HB 2138), among other legislative initiatives.

 

WHEN:

Tuesday, January   26th h from 8:00am to 11:00am, and

Wednesday, January 27th from 8:00 to 10:00am

We will visit different legislators each day. The time could have minor changes according to the availability of the legislators

We are very excited to keep fighting for the expansion of immigrant rights in Virginia during this year’s General Assembly. We hope you will be able to join us to ensure that Virginia respects and welcomes all its residents.
