If you want people in office that truly represent you and your interests, you have to get involved way before November. A lot of things happen before a candidate lands on the November ballot and you can learn all about them at this event. You’ll learn about committees, caucuses, primaries, the VA election cycle, district borders, and finally, how to get involved/run for office. At the end of the event, voters will be provided with resources to learn more and take action.
I promise this will be a fun Civics class.
This is a free event. To help us maintain social distancing guidelines, please reserve your spot via the Universe ticketing link. Unreserved seating will be available first come, first serve.
This is the first event in a series we’re calling Civics for Grownups. These events are being organized in the spirit of education. Speakers are invited because they know stuff and will often co-host the event. Presenters and speakers at these events may be affiliated with a political party but these events are not campaign rallies or debates, though questions are always welcome.
Caitlin Bennett, Chair of the Fredericksburg Democratic Committee, will present at our inaugural event.
If you know stuff and would like to present, or if you want to know stuff about a specific civics topic, PM us! We value your input and thrive in a collaborative environment.
Updates to this event will be forthcoming as additional details are finalized.
