Burke Three speakers discussed “the art of the possible” at a legislative forum held Dec. 4 at Accotink Unitarian Universalist Church in Burke.
Lavona Grow, past executive director of Unitarian Universalists for Social Justice (UUSJ), Anna Rhee, advocacy consultant for UUSJ, and Rebecca Bowers-Lanier of B2L Consulting addressed the upcoming Virginia General Assembly session.
At the free public forum, Grow, Rhee and Bowers-Lanier stressed the importance for people who are concerned about climate change, immigration and economic justice, health care and other social justice issues to be both active and vigilant as these issues come before state and federal lawmakers in 2017.
That discussion included potential bills and their impact on social justice issues, how to advocate for a bill and other actions citizens can take to have an influence on legislative outcomes.
