Join Us at the WV Grassroots Summit
This September, we hope you'll join us for a two-day planning and grassroots organizing summit in Buckhannon, WV. People all across our state are rising up to fight for equality for themselves, their families, and their neighbors - not for big donors on Wall Street. In West Virginia, we believe in freedom for all people regardless of gender, race, class, orientation, disability, or status. During our two day event, you will have the opportunity to join in on trainings, workshops, projects, networking opportunities, roundtable discussions, and more - if you are standing up for yourself, your family, and/or your community, this summit is for you!

Capital Eye: What a Week!
What a week! by: Gary Zuckett By week’s end, the Senate had introduced 585 bills and the House 934 for a total of 1519.

Capital Eye, January 2017
Most of us seem relieved that 2016 is finally over. The last legislative session was rough, then the primary elections were followed by June’s 1,000 year flood, and we capped off the year by electing ‘the Apprentice’ for president. 2017 will be even more challenging. Are you ready? We are - with your input and support!
