WEDNESDAY: In Northern Virginia, Tom Perriello to Visit Low-Income Senior Center, Tour Immigrant-Owned Small Businesses, Attend Leesburg Town Hall Hosted by Local Progressive Groups
During Leesburg Town Hall, Perriello to Emphasize Importance of Translating Progressive Movement Activism Into Meaningful Political Action
With just 6 days left until the Virginia primary election, on Wednesday, June 7, Tom Perriello, Democratic candidate for governor of Virginia, will visit a low-income senior center in Arlington, tour an immigrant-owned small business in Falls Church and attend a town hall in Leesburg hosted by local progressive organizations including Ashburn-Sterling Indivisible, ACT Empowered, and Thunderdome. During Wednesday’s events, Tom will outline his progressive plans to support working families and ensure every Virginian, no matter their race or region, gets the opportunity to succeed.
In Arlington, Tom will meet seniors at Culpepper Gardens, a low-income senior center, and highlight his commitment to support Virginia’s seniors. Later, in Falls Church, Tom will tour small businesses owned by Ethiopian immigrants as he continues to spotlight minority-owned businesses that are integral to Virginia’s economy and are vibrant parts of our communities. At the event, Tom will emphasize the vital need to protect our immigrant friends and neighbors and inclusive Virginia values.
In Leesburg, Tom will listen to and answer questions from voters as part of a discussion about resisting President Trump’s hateful and divisive agenda through meaningful political action. Tom will discuss why it is more important than ever for the next generation of activists to mobilize and make their voices heard by actively participating in state and local elections. Since announcing his candidacy on January 5, 2017, Tom’s progressive campaign of pragmatic populism has activated tens of thousands of supporters who are energized by his willingness to stand up to Trump’s hateful agenda and his positive vision to create opportunity and secure justice for every Virginian.
