Were you part of the Blue Wave in 2019? Did you knock doors, phone bank or volunteer at your precinct on Election Day? Let’s celebrate our historic victory and look forward to 2020.  (This event was scheduled for February 8, but had to be postponed when a massive fire shut down traffic on the streets near our venue.) 

We’ll combine the volunteer thank you with the Happy Hour cosponsored by the Mount Vernon Democratic Committee.

Lee Dems were delighted to hear from Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring at our February meeting!

Herring talked about taking the strongest possible stand against a Trump agenda targeting minorities, immigrants, health care and economic security for the majority of Americans. “It started the first couple of weeks after I took office when I stood up and told the world that Virginia was not going to defend an unconstitutional ban on same-sex couples,” he said, adding that Virginia was the first state to get an injunction against the administration’s Muslim ban.

Meanwhile, his office is battling the White House and red-state attorneys general in federal court in Texas to save Obamacare; taking on large pharmaceutical companies over the opioid crisis; fighting for gun safety laws; suing the federal government to act on the General Assembly’s passage of the Equal Rights Amendment; and, among many other reforms, is working toward decriminalizing cannabis. “Virginians are demanding progress and with your continued help and support, we’re going to deliver that,” he said.
