Make your plans now to attend the 2016 Virginia People’s Assembly For Jobs, Peace & Justice!

The 8th Annual Virginia People’s Assembly for Jobs, Peace & Justice will be held Saturday, April 23, 2016, at Wesley Memorial United Methodist Church (1720 Mechanicsville Turnpike) in Richmond, Va. Doors open for onsite registration at 8 am, with the conference starting at 9 am.

The VPA is an annual gathering of people from many communities across Virginia who are engaged in a broad range of struggles. We are union members, community activists, ex-prisoners and prisoner advocates, immigrants, students, youth, elders, women, antiwar organizers, veterans, members of Black Lives Matter, members of the LGBT community, the physically and mentally disabled, environmentalists and more.

We are fighting against police abuse and for a $15 wage for fast-food and other low-wage workers. We are defending our unions and organizing the unorganized. We are struggling against war, racism, classism, and sexism in all their many forms. And with the VPA we help to bring together all those who are working to win justice for our local communities and for the world as a whole.

At the VPA we meet people from other communities and learn about their struggles. We share our own experiences. We make friends and allies, pass resolutions and plan future actions. Together, we help to build the progressive movement in Virginia.

  1. Peace! To all those seeking truth, justice, and a change in the existing, oppressive system under which we now live, I strive to become part of this movement, and I’m humbled and honored to be linked-up with the Defender’s for FJ&E!!!

  2. Looking forward the social paradigm shift of this system! Much work & sacrifice ahead, but we know that those in power will concede nothing unless WE demand it! Hotep!

    • Thank you Christopher!

      Looking forward,
