LWV & 1VA2021 Memorial Day Parade

We Walk for Voters

It is Election season! Decisions are made at the ballot box, so it's crucial everyone makes their voice heard June 12th and November 6th. Let's join forces to make a big impact!

This is a great opportunity to elevate democracy and voting! Join the League of Women Voters from VA, DC, and MD and OneVirginia2021 at the Memorial Day Parade! Wear a red, a white, or a blue t-shirt. Show your pride for being a voter! Have other fun swag to show off (costumes, bags, umbrellas, kids' scooters/wagons, etc.)? Bring it! Just leave the candy and paper at home (parade rules: parade walkers and floats may not distribute anything on the parade route). And leave political party and candidate info at home, too (LWV & 1VA are nonpartisan). 

Bring friends and get ready to have a lot of fun! Share, share, share! We want everyone to know that it's time to make a voter plan. Let's show our excitement in the parade!! 

Bring kids!!! Go big with red, white, and blue!! 

Meeting location: N. West Street (near the intersection of N. West Street and Park Ave.) We are #23 in line.
