People around the state are moving to get their local governments to weigh in on the proposed racist anti-immigrant legislation moving steadily through the House of Delegates.
On Monday, February 7, the Charlottesville City Council will vote on a resolution opposing the bad bills. A local activist offered them a draft based on the one posted here on the Virginia United Against Oppression website. The council will rearrange the wording, but seem prepared to pass the resolution unanimously. Anyone in the Charlottesville area is encouraged to attend the Monday meeting and speak in favor of this resolution.
Norfolk City Council has received a similar draft of a resolution and we are eagerly waiting to hear what they think. While they may not pass something unanimously, we think the resolution has a good shot at happening.
Richmond City Council, as well, will be receiving a draft resolution in the coming days and again, we hope to hear good things from them!
