June 11, 2017:  Gerryrigged!  Turning Democracy on Its Head
A special FREE screening of this 55 minute PBS/WCVE (Richmond) Documentary in the Foster Room at 5pm followed by Q&A with Dan Grogan and Caroline Sheridan of OneVirginia2021 for updates on legislative and litigation developments and the road ahead in our multi partisan effort to reform our system that now has our politicians choosing their voters rather than the other way around. Since 2014 the number of Virginians supporting the efforts for fair redistricting has increased to nearly 50,000.  As the 2020 census approaches we need your participation to continue to grow this movement and bring about reform.  It is a multi-partisan approach, that includes all citizens regardless of affiliation. OneVirginia2021 believes that state and congressional districts belong to the citizens of our Commonwealth, and not to any legislator, political party or special interest.
Mass on the Grass
Join us each Wednesday at 6 p.m. throughout the summer for an informal outdoor worship service and potluck supper. Begins June 14.
