Virginia AFL-CIO launches “Labor In Session” website

The Virginia AFL-CIO last week launched a new “Labor In Session” website (Click here) as the 2020 Virginia General Assembly session started. “We must take full advantage of this moment to push a robust pro-worker agenda focused on moving Virginia from the worst state for workers to the best,” said Julie Hunter, Virginia AFL-CIO Campaign Manager. This website is designed to help empower union activists and allies to advocate for legislation that expands the right to organize, protect workers and raises wages. Activists can find and contact their State Senator and Delegate, take rapid action on legislation as it moves through committees and floor votes, and sign up to help lobby for labor at the General Assembly. The website also provides updates and talking points.

LCDC Statement on Impeachment

Leesburg, VA Dec. 8th, 2019 – It is a sad and somber day in our nation’s history whenever the need for impeachment arises. We believe that the removal of a president is not something to be undertaken lightly, but should be done with care and justice. The founders created this process to ensure that no one was above the law and that our great nation would not fall into the hands of foreign interests. America is a country based on rules, principles, and integrity. These values are not Democratic or Republican but American to their core. We have been the leading nation to uphold these values in the past, and now more than ever we need to ensure that we continue to govern by the rule of law.

Thank You Loudoun Democrats

Loudoun County Virginia, November 5th, 2019 – The people of Virginia awoke this morning to a new reality. A reality where women will be treated as equals. A reality where criminals will no longer be able to purchase weapons of war to terrorize our schools, movie theaters, churches, and synagogues. A reality of inclusivity for all people regardless of the color of their skin, their sexual / gender orientation or their religious affiliation. A reality where our schools prioritize the needs of children over decreasing the tax rate by a couple of pennies. The people have spoken loudly and clearly and have insisted that Virginia join the majority of America in the 21st century by MANDATING policies that just make sense. This morning Virginians awoke to find themselves living in a Blue State.

The Diverse Classroom Library Initiative

By Charlotte McConnell, LCDC Member – November 9th, 2019 – At the start of this school year, LCPS unveiled their Diverse Classroom Library initiative. These books are not mandatory or apart of core curriculum. They can be used in lessons if there is a direct tie to the subject matter. These books were selected by LCPS staff using the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project’s Diversity Book List and Mackin’s Identity Inclusive Texts Rubric. This was done to ensure every student in LCPS has access to books that reflect their lived experiences.

LCDC Statement on Trump’s Racism

LCDC, August 10th,2019 – With a president who prides himself on being controversial, we realize we can’t respond to every tweet. Besides being a waste of time, it would be impossible. But we also realize there are times when it’s important to stand up and speak out. This is one of those times.
