Women discuss change in government

Local News

Women came together in Roanoke Thursday to push for more change in government.

Part of the Roanoke Women’s March, the group discussed ways to keep people interested and involved in local government.

They also wrote postcards to their Virginia representatives about the issues they care about.

“Some of these people may not know who their elected officials are. I don’t think a lot of people know how important midterm elections are and how important local government is in affecting who our national representatives are,” Djuna Osborne, Organizer, said.

The group meets at the Aurora Studio Center on Campbell Avenue.

It’s part of a grassroots effort to create groups of volunteers in different areas to help move their strategies forward.
