Volunteer Outreach Meeting
Thursday, May 18th, 6:30 pm
JMRL Library, 201 E. Market

There are a lot of ways to help with volunteer opportunities for every person and commitment level.  Want to show your support? Stop by to pick up a yard sign, button, or more information on Jeff Fogel’s platform to share. Most of what we need are people talking to neighbors about the June 13th Democratic primary election and our agent for change, Jeff Fogel.

Jeff Fogel is the progressive change Charlottesville’s criminal justice system needs and he needs your help to get there! Bring friends and share this event!



Why Fogel?

As a civil rights attorney, Jeff has tried cases in both criminal and civil courts for nearly 50 years. Jeff Fogel has a proven track record of fearlessly fighting for progressive reform of our criminal justice system. As Charlottesville’s Commonwealth Attorney, he will fight to end mass incarceration by keeping as many non-violent people out of the criminal justice system as possible. He will refuse to prosecute mere possession of marijuana, reject racial-profiling and unaccountable use of stop-and-frisk, reform our broken cash bail system, and reform or disband JADE.

The War on Drugs, accompanied by use of mandatory minimum sentencing and over-prosecution, is counterproductive, a waste of time and resources, and damaging our communities. By re-focusing the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office on prosecuting serious crimes, Fogel will seek alternatives to incarceration — dramatically reducing mass incarceration, saving millions of tax dollars, and allowing our community to thrive by providing Justice for All.

Participatory Budgeting:

BeCville has invited Maria Hadden, the Project Manager from the Participatory Budgeting Project in the Midwest and South, to talk with the Charlottesville community about the impact that their work is making throughout the country by putting public funds in the hands of residents. She is going to share a host of information about how participatory budgeting works to build community leadership and civic participation.

It would be great to have you join us as we continue to push for ways that the community can have a greater say in the future of our cities.

Participatory Budgeting Talk - 2pm Friday April 14 @ Tom Tom Home Town Summit

Participatory Budgeting Workshop 10am -12  April 15, Water Street Center



Thursday, March 16th

6:00 pm, JMRL Library

To have a voice in local government, members of this community recognize that we must look for new and innovative ways to get involved. So, where do we start? And how can you participate?

At our March meeting, EPiC Members Lena Seville, Matthew Slaats and Walter Heinecke will briefly present their experiences in finding answers to these questions. Whether writing a letter, participating in City meetings or organizing an event, there are many ways to get involved in making our City a better place. This will be followed by a group discussion of how we can better organize for greater impact.
