If you've gone shopping within the past few weeks, you've likely noticed that most retailers seem to have bypassed Thanksgiving en route to Christmas. With holiday tunes playing in many stores and Black Friday sales flyers filling our mailboxes, Thanksgiving can seem like nothing more than a commercialized kickoff event for the Christmas season. 

Pause for a minute. 397 years ago, English colonists celebrated the first Thanksgiving at Berkeley Plantation in neighboring Charles City County. On December 4 of 1619, the settlers gave thanks for safe arrival after a treacherous journey from England. Compared to the lifestyles Americans enjoy today, these settlers had nothing. The colonists were in an unknown and unsettled land with no idea of the hardships that would befall them. Survival was a daily struggle. These early settlers gave thanks because they were simply grateful to be alive and to have the opportunity to pursue a new life in a new land.  

Consider how blessed we are today! Many of the hardships faced by the colonists are completely inconceivable to those of us blessed to live in the twenty-first century. Tomorrow let us give thanks for the countless blessings--both great and small--that we enjoy and too often take for granted. From my family to yours, I wish you a happy Thanksgiving!

Sincerely,
Signature
Delegate Brenda L. Pogge

FOIA Docs Received on Refugee Resettlement

FOIA Docs Received on Refugee Resettlement
Make Virginia Great Again Update  
 
   

Be a FOIA Virginian!   You can and I Did!

And ... Make Virginia Great Again!

The Virginia Citizen is not privy to the FOIA documents we just received and just because Trump won, we can not relax as we must get transparency at the state and local level.  

Can I make a statement?

NEVER DEPEND ON THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO FIX ANYTHING LOCALLY!
 
Trump Admin could freeze refugee resettlement until the next presidential election or end up in court.   

UPDATE:

On November 17th I picked up a large box of documents from my FOIA request (freedom of information act) from the Office of Newcomer Services downtown Richmond.  

These were available to me in hard copy only.  I must say, they responded fast and were very proactive on my request, and nice as can be!

But to make these available to all Virginians, have to get the thousands of pages into the digital and searchable world.  

So, for the last week, my resources have been going through the cumbersome and time consuming scanning process which is  using the  correct software to produce searchable documents in a PDF with OCR (Optical Character Recognition technology).  This allows citizens, legislators and others to search the entire FIOA by keyword.  Plus you have dozens and more stapled docs which have to be unstapled, examined, settings adjusted, scanned and then re-staple the documents.  This is a truly laborious process

My hope is to share this publicly to all Virginians and allow the grassroots to have true transparency and see how the inner workings look like between the refugee resettlement contract, the state of Virginia and the federal office of the Office of Refugee Resettlement. 

I have looked to see if anything like this has been done in other states and haven't seen it, but could well have been done.  

This is also the reason you have not received a newsletter in many days as the presidential election and other priorities, such as this research,  has devoured the time.

[LPVA Announce] Running for office or volunteering for a campaign in 2017, 2018, or beyond?

Hello, Virginia Libertarians!

I know that many of you are planning to run for state legislature or local office this year or next, and most of the rest of you are planning to support these campaigns as volunteers and/or donors. Thus, I'd like to let you know about some great political training opportunities right here in Virginia.

The Leadership Institute in Arlington offers a variety of short workshops and multi-day schools for future candidates, campaign managers, and other political activists. While their stated mission is to train "conservative leaders and activists," they also welcome Libertarian students, and their lessons in the day-to-day nuts-and-bolts of campaigning tend to be applicable regardless of ideology.

Here are some courses coming up over the next six months that I think our candidates and activists could learn a lot from:

Enrolling in a political training class? Or need help paying for one?

Are you planning to attend a future Leadership Institute class, CPAC activist bootcamp, or other political training class? Do you want to know more about possible scholarships from the LPVA or setting up your own tuition fundraiser through GoFundMe? 

Please join our new Libertarian Political Training Study Buddies group on Facebook:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/LPStudyBuddies/

You can use this group to connect with your fellow Libertarian classmates in your upcoming courses, exchange advice about what kind of training is the most useful for candidates and other activists, and present your case as to why funding your training would be a good investment for our donors.


Want to invest in developing our party's human capital? Please donate to the LPVA Political Training Scholarship Fund!

Tuition for these Leadership Institute courses ranges from $60 for short workshops to $300 for comprehensive 4-day schools (the latter includes meals and dormitory lodging). This may not seem like a lot of money to many of you, but we often find that our volunteers with the most time to give to the party are also the ones least able to afford these extra expenses.

Can you please help our most dedicated candidates and activists learn the skills they need to succeed by sponsoring one or more LPVA members for training? If yes, please donate at:

http://scholarship.lpva.com/

- $250 sends one student to Future Candidates School or Campaign Management School
- $300 sends one student to Comprehensive Fundraising Training
- $125 sends one student to an On-Camera Television Workshop
- $100 sends one student to one of the Public Speaking, Public Relations, or Debate workshops

Or donate whatever amount you can afford and we will apply it to the next available training opportunity.

If you'd like to sponsor LPVA members for training but would prefer to decide which students and classes to sponsor on a case-by-case basis, please contact me at Secretary@LPVA.com or 434-473-2361 and tell me more about your budget and funding priorities. I'll then followup with you as specific needs arise. However, donating right now via http://scholarship.lpva.com/ will allow us to act quickly to get as many potential state delegate candidates as possible into December's Future Candidates School.


Let's learn how to make 2017 our best year yet. See you in class! :)


In Liberty,
Jacqueline Passey Mason
Secretary, Libertarian Party of Virginia
