Join us in DC April 16-18 for Democracy Awakening!

Later this month, thousands of people will be coming together in our nation’s capital to demand a democracy that works for all of us – where our votes are not denied and money doesn’t buy access and power.  Democracy Awakening includes a day of workshops, a massive rally/march, and visits to Capitol Hill to talk with elected officials.  See the full schedule here.

WV Citizen Action Group is arranging a 15 passenger van to and from the event, and we’d like to offer you a chance to join us!  If you’re interested, please RSVP by Wednesday, April 13th.  Only 11 seats are available, so hurry!

See below for more details on the event. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Ciera Pennington at 304.346.5891 or ciera@wvcag.org.
