On November 8th America lost.  The America we know and love lost an election. As Progressives we have always been on the front lines, standing up to bullies of all kinds. Going forward that's not gonna change. Please help us fight back against the biggest threat we've faced in our lifetime. Please help us, now more than ever.

#GivingTuesday is Here


Dear Friends

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday spent with family and friends, filled with memorable moments and invigorating, soul-fortifying laughter and conversation. 

But did you notice how quickly Thanksgiving gave way to the “Shopping Season”?

In the frenzy that accompanies the unofficial start of the Christmas season, the "Spirit of Giving" can transform into a hyperawareness of prices and sales; and into a focus on material wealth above all else.

First Black Friday, then Cyber Monday… and you are overwhelmed by a barrage of advertising aimed at you and your children. 

All of this degrades the true spirit of the holiday, don’t you think?

Thankfully, #GivingTuesday gives us a chance to reflect on how much our lives intersect with others every day.. Celebrated across the globe, and in the U.S. as of 2012, it is a Day that Celebrates Volunteerism and Charitable Giving rather than the acquisition of material goods.

Here is your chance to to spend your dollars on something meaningful.

In Richmond, The Alliance for a Progressive Virginia fights for issues that matter to us all, and has been doing so for nearly six years. It’s good to know you have an organization here, in the center of Virginia, standing up and fighting for Progressive Values, especially now, in these uncertain and anxiety-ridden times.

APV has stood up for clean energy and the environment against Dominion Power and the energy extraction companies that want to cling to the profits of the past while preventing the Commonwealth from leading the way in adopting the technologies of the future.

We’ve stood against bigotry of all kinds and we’ve voiced our concerns at the General Assembly and before Congress, pushing for the rights of minorities, women, the LGBTQ community and the disabled. We fight for justice: equal rights under the law, and for lives free from discrimination and attack.

Here in Richmond, we’ve proudly joined with other activists to scuttle plans for “white elephant” deals like the Shockoe Bottom Stadium and the Boulevard sellout. 

We work for a fair deal for Richmond families and, in particular, for a school system that serves every student.

We do a lot and we can do more with your help. Check us out on Facebook, Twitter and the Web.

We’re in the midst of our fall fundraising drive and are hoping to raise at least $500 dollars this #GivingTuesday. These are hard and frightening times, the recent election has shaken us all. Now more than ever, we need to join together and stand strong! Won't you stand with us this #GivingTuesday?

$5 Friday,

In two months Donald Trump will become the 45th president of the United States. We are preparing for the hardest fight of our lives as Progressives.

It's Friday, can you spare $5 to help us?
