Henrico Citizen: Spanberger completes two-day district tour


U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger of Virginia’s Seventh District, last week conducted a two-day, civil rights-focused tour in Central Virginia. Spanberger’s district includes the western half of Henrico County.

Spanberger focused what she called the civil rights tour on learning more about the priorities of the Seventh District’s underserved and marginalized communities. During her seven-stop tour, she met with local advocates, community organizations, nonprofits, and volunteers to focus on regional issues related to economic justice, childhood poverty, disability rights, racial justice, homelessness, anti-discrimination, LGBTQ equality, and more.

Last Tuesday, Spanberger met with Henrico Court Appointed Special Advocates, or CASA, and learned about its efforts to work on behalf of abused and neglected children in the greater Richmond area and toured its facilities, and also visited the Henrico campus of ChildFund International, which works to combat childhood poverty in the US and worldwide.
