The Group That Used to Have 'Project' In Its Name
For more than 15 years they were known as the Virginia Organizing Project. Then they changed the name to just Virginia Organizing.
But there are still lots of projects. Voting rights, healthcare, tax reform, and immigration are just a few of the most current.
