The Danville chapter, formed in November 2010, has been hard at work creating a local jobs campaign for Southside Virginia. In an area with the highest unemployment rates in the state, residents are tired of sitting on the sidelines and want to get involved in the fight to bring well-paying jobs to Danville and the surrounding areas. In addition to the local jobs campaign, the chapter is working on a variety of state and national issues, from state-level tax reform and health care implementation to national campaigns around Social Security and unemployment benefits.

Through regular chapter meetings, in-depth research and community outreach, members are engaging new people and building a strong local chapter. And if you live in the area, we’d love to have you involved!
