Elevating Women in Politics, From Galax to Gainesville


Virginia laws don't always work for the everyday woman.  

NWPC-VA invites you to bring a friend as we kick off our Virginia Legislative Agenda for Women (V-LAW). V-LAW will empower Virginians to learn about an issue and apply creative problem solving skills to improve Virginia’s laws for women. This fall we will focus on virtual sexual harassment (aka the still legal in Virginia “dick pics”) .

Join us on September 9th as we kick off this empowering series.

Session One- Laying out the Issues

NWPC-VA will host the first V-LAW series highlighting women who have experienced it all.  Participants will hear from survivors and legal experts about the ramifications of how Virginia law did not support the needs of Virginia women.
