Join us in DC for Democracy Awakening!

We want to offer you a chance to join us in DC April 16-18 for Democracy Awakening!  

Thousands of people will be coming together to demand a democracy that works for all of us – a nation where our votes are not denied and money doesn’t buy access and power.  The event includes a day of workshops, a massive rally/march, and visits to Capitol Hill to talk with elected officials.  See the full schedule here.

WV CAG is arranging a 15 passenger van to and from DC for the event, and we’d like to offer you a chance to join us!  If you’re interested, see below for details and how to sign-up.  Seating is limited, so hurry!

  • Costs
    • Van seat reservation – $10
    • Housing – $10+ (more on this below in the “How to RSVP” section)
    • All meals and other incidental costs to be paid for by attendee, not WV CAG
