One thought on “Annual Rally (Richmond, VA) – 2022

  1. IMPORTANT NOTICE! The rally site has been changed from Capitol Square to Monroe Park, 620 W. Main St., Richmond, VA 23220. This will give us more control over the rally, including being aboe to hold it from 1-2:30 pm instead of just 1-2. Please visit the Facebook event page – Mark yourself “Going,” invite your friends and share the page. It will really help to build the event. Thanks! – Phil Wilayto, for the Jan. 22 Organizing Committee
