EVENT FOR ELLA BAKER YOUTH LEADERSHIP PROGRAM

DELEGATE JENNIFER CARROLL FOY'S ELLA BAKER YOUTH LEADERSHIP PROGRAM

HEAVY SEAS ALEHOUSE

1501 WILSON BLVD.

ARLINGTON, VA 22209

Diversity Declaration joins Virginia Delegate Jennifer Carroll Foy in inviting all our supporters to a happy hour on July 16, aiming to raise $2000 to send six to eight high school students from under-represented backgrounds to learn first-hand about state government in the Virginia State Capitol next year, free of charge. Through the Ella Baker Fellowship Program, named for the civil rights leader, the students sit in subcommittee meetings, meet advocacy groups, shadow the Delegate, and meet with Governor Northam and Lt. Governor Fairfax.
