Building Future Leaders in Virginia
Great news! On July 16, we raised $1,450 for the Ella Baker Youth Leadership Program, established by Virginia Delegate Jennifer Carroll Foy, through the happy hour we co-hosted with her team at Heavy Seas Ale House in Arlington. Thanks to all who attended and donated so generously, in person and online! Donations continue to be accepted towards our $2,500 goal, at http://www.actblue.com/ellabaker or by check, made out to Jennifer Carroll Foy for Delegate, P.O. Box 5113, Woodbridge, VA 22194, annotated for the Ella Baker YLP.
We're excited to help these diversity high school students get first-hand experiences with political leaders and the Legislature, and start imagining their future roles in the political life of this country.
