The WVEC’s annual E-Day will take place virtually tomorrow night, Wednesday, March 10, from 6:00 – 7:30 PM.
The agenda includes live music, a live auction of this Charly Hamilton print, and live updates from legislators and our lobby team on what to look for as the 2021 Legislative Session reaches its halfway point. (Spoiler alert: we will need your continued help to defeat some harmful legislation and to urge passage of some really good bills.)
See you tomorrow!
