COVID-19 Pandemic

Wash your hands. Don't touch your face. Carry sanitizer. Stay home or away from group events. Check on family, friends or neighbors who live alone. Stock up on food and necessities, but not at the expense of your neighbors. (The only reason there is a TP shortage is because people have bought far more than they need now)

Check the CDC website for national updates on the pandemic. The Virginia Department of Health site includes the Richmond Department of Health updates.

2/20/12

and meanwhile right now:
**YES, THE PROTEST *AND* THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY WILL BE IN SESSION ON MONDAY, DESPITE PRECIPITATION AND THE HOLIDAY **

CALL FOR ACTION: On Feb 20th at 11 am, we call for 500 women (but men are very welcome and wanted!) to line either side of the walkway between the General Assembly building and the Capitol in SILENCE as our Senators and Representatives pass between the two buildings several times day to work on passing bills oppressive to women and reproductive rights. **Please note that the legislators WILL be in session on Feb 20!**

We are there to tell our elected representatives: Support women's rights to control their bodies! Don't enact oppressive Anti-choice (what pro-life really means) laws!

A RALLY will follow at 2pm at the Bell Tower with supportive Senators, Delegates, and women's rights leaders.
