Conference Call: Debriefing on Virginia’s Elections, and Immigrant Advocacy in the 2014 General Assembly
VACOLAO and CAPAVA invites you to participate in our conference call that will discuss the recent Virginia statewide elections and their implications for our legislative advocacy efforts during the 2014 General Assembly. This year’s election has shifted the political map in our state significantly opening the door to new opportunities to push for VACOLAO and CAPAVA’s legislative priorities in defense of the rights of immigrant communities residing in the Commonwealth. How this election has impacted the possibilities for the Affordable Care Act: Medicaid expansion in Virginia, in-state tuition for Virginia DREAMers, driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants in Virginia and others. We must not wait however and need to keep working.
Call participants will be joined by policy analysts who will discuss the electoral results as well as help guide a discussion concerning our legislative priorities and possible advocacy strategies. Participants will have the chance for a Q & A portion.
