Richmond, VA—Virginians will hold a car rally and parade in Richmond on Saturday at noon to demand that every vote is counted in this election in order to swear in a government that is of, by, and for the people. We are coming together across lines of difference to stand up for the values that underpin our democratic system—to count every vote, to demand the peaceful transition of power, and to put power in the hands of the people—where it belongs. In our democracy, our voices and our votes count. We pick our leaders—our leaders do not pick their voters. The event will include speakers from our communities followed by a car rally and parade.

Who: Voters, essential workers, civil rights advocates, and more.

When: 12:00 p.m on Saturday November 7, 2020

Where:  1615 E. Broad Street 

Why:  For democracy to work for all of us, every voter must have their voice heard and their vote counted. Election officials will take the time that their job demands to count every vote, verify the results, and get it right. Trump doesn’t get to decide when the election is over.

Security: Text 540-460-1269 upon arrival to arrange an interview with an event spokesperson. Social distancing and mask use required.

Event hosts include Equality Virginia Advocates, For Our Future VA, New Virginia Majority, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Virginia, Progress Virginia,  SEIU 32BJ, SEIU Virginia 512, and the Virginia AFL-CIO.
