Also, the various Green Party booths this month were a success.
We are involved in a newly formed 15Now campaign to raise the minimum wage to $15 in the Fairfax/Arlington area. We very much need more volunteers. To volunteer please sign up at www.15nownorthernvirginia.com You can also like our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/15-Now-Northern-Virginia-683551861813907/
The NoVA Greens have formed an almost official coalition with Socialist Alternative DMV, it is through this joint effort we are launching the *non-partisan* 15now campaign. This is non-partisan because we are reaching out to other parties and other orgs for them to be involved in the leadership structure as well.
Big month for us.
Jill Stein made the Virginia ballot. Thanks so much to all the volunteers! Travis Holmes (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the new state Stein campaign coordinator. Jonah Thomas (email@example.com) is the regional Stein coordinator. Email Jonah Thomas about all things Stein first, if he doesn’t get back to you, you can email Travis.
