The South Hampton Roads Chapter of Virginia Organizing meets every other month at 7 p.m. at Thalia United Methodist Church, 4321 Virginia Beach Boulevard in Virginia Beach. We have an organizing model which focuses on training and educating people through a leadership process that develops democratic skills and builds a sense of self-empowerment to help others in their communities, the state of Virginia and nationwide. We have created issue teams so that folks can address their specific passions while standing in solidarity together in supporting each other on all issues of social justice that have been agreed upon by the chapter supporters. We are currently working collaboratively with like-minded allies on the issues of Health Care, Economic Justice and Tax Equity, Immigration Reform, Affordable Housing, Jobs, Predatory Lending, Keeping the Ban on Uranium Mining, Transportation and Voter Protection/ Suppression Issues in the cities of Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk and Virginia Beach. What’s the greatest need in your community? Please join us and find out how you can make a difference!
