events in Richmond have left our heads spinning. In one week, the top three
elected officials, the Democratic Governor, Lt. Governor and Attorney General,
were under attack for shocking moral failures that jeopardize their positions,
the state of the Commonwealth and the whole Democratic agenda. Information came
fast and furious, and so did reactions from leaders across the Commonwealth and
the country, who demanded their resignations.
The RCDC decided to take a more deliberate approach. At our February 9 general
meeting, we held a discussion, weighed the issues and took a vote. It helped to
clear our thinking. The result was an open letter to the Governor to encourage
a positive way forward toward redemption for racial equity for all Virginians.
We encourage Governor Ralph Northam to take the lead.
Due to snow, we’re rescheduling “Equal Means Equal” to Tuesday, January 15 at 6 pm at the Rappahannock Public Library.
We hope to screen a 30-minute version of the film and discuss actions we can take during the current General Assembly in Richmond to ensure that Virginia becomes the 38th and final state necessary to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment.
This weekend, enjoy our winter wonderland. Then join us on Tuesday evening!
