Monthly Membership Meeting with Del Hala Ayala and Candidate Josh Cole!

Monday, April 15 6:30 – 8:30

Lyon Village Community House

1920 N. Highland St, Arlington, VA

Will be collecting dry goods for AFAC!

It’s a TWOFER: the amazing Del Hala Ayala and Dist. 28 Candidate Josh Cole attending; speaking and answering questions. WofAs worked hard to Flip Dist. #51 for Hala – and we made a difference! This year Delegate Ayala is facing a serious race as her previous opponent plans to run.

Candidate Cole’s 2017 was a heartbreaker – administrative lapses may have resulted in his slim loss in Dist. #81: “Cole ran on the Democratic ticket against Thomas in 2017 and finished 73 votes short after a recount. The election results were challenged by Cole after 384 voters were directed to vote in the wrong district due to mislabeled district lines. Courts ruled the state had not disenfranchised the voters who voted in the wrong district.” ~ InsideNoVA.
See below for more info on these more than able candidates.

Don’t forget your drygoods donation for AFAC!

Additonally, we will have current updates and actions on local and statewide issues – bring a friend!

WofA Voting & Elections Kick Off!!!

Monday, February 18th – 7:00 to 9:00 PM

Calling all WofA’s! This is not just any meeting – Please RSVP now: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/wofa-voting-elections-kick-off-meeting-tickets-56002496976

This is the kickoff to our efforts to Flip the VA General Assembly. Anyone who has followed the 2019 VA General Assembly session knows that bill after bill was shot down by the Republican majority – let’s pull out the stops and change out our GA!
We’re making this a meeting/party – with snacks and libations and plenty of WofA solidarity. We’ll discuss recommendations for “adopt-a-candidates”, how we’ll be coordinating with the larger VA Grassroots Coalition efforts, what it means to adopt a district, and best of all, identify opportunities for you to get involved!
Meeting location: Chez Shutler. 2923 N. Oxford St. Arlington VA 22207. For more information, contact Sharon at: shutlersharon@gmail.com or Jessie Clark at jessie@carefreeboats.co
