What if we brought the Charlottesville community together to creatively collaborate, not just once, but on a recurring basis?

After an amazing Imagination Foundation launch event back in September, the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation started to see what is possible when they bring together diverse minds and contrasting ideas. Now they’re ready to continue the conversation and expand on that collaboration in a more hands-on way.

In preparation for Virginia’s 2018 General Assembly session, Virginia Conservation Network and its Network partners are convening for a preview of what’s in store for our natural landscapes and resources. Volunteers, board members, and staff of partner organizations — as well as those interested in getting more involved in Virginia’s conservation community — are invited to learn about priority environmental topics and discuss our collective approach to advancing policy in the upcoming legislative session.

Traditionally, this annual event has taken place only in Richmond, VA. In order to better accommodate the vast majority of Virginians who live outside of the region, VCN member organizations are hosting several watch parties across the Commonwealth, in addition to hosting the regular in-person event. The regional watch party locations include Fredericksburg, Harrisonburg, Reston, Roanoke, Virginia Beach, and Warrenton.

A talk by environmental activist and author Terry Tempest Williams.

She has been called "a citizen writer," a writer who speaks out eloquently on behalf of an ethical stance toward all life forms. A naturalist and fierce advocate for freedom of speech, she has consistently shown us how environmental issues are social issues that ultimately become matters of justice. "So here is my question," she asks, "what might a different kind of power look like, feel like, and can power be redistributed equitably even beyond our own species?"
