The Northern Virginia Green Party suffered a loss recently. Party Chairman Paul Hughes died suddenly on September 15th (click Paul’s name for a link to the obituary). His energy and dedication for social justice, sustainable development, and creating a truly citizen-oriented political party are the hallmarks of his legacy.
The Northern Virginia Green Party is part of that tradition. To that end, we are holding a meeting to elect temporary officers to preside over the party until a full election can be held in January or February. Also, we will be discussing ways to support the Jill Stein for President campaign, and the Joe Galdo for Congress campaign here in the area.
We look forward to seeing you Sunday, October 7th from 2:30pm to 5pm
Location: 10360 North Street Fairfax, VA Room 214
