On Tuesday, May 23, 2017, we held a seminar to help promote community policing by educating the community on constitutional laws while revealing grey areas of interaction between law enforcement and citizens. This event also served as an opportunity to educate the community on the pitfalls and schemes of predatory lending. Click the image for the full story!
Today, we are proud to announce the beginning of our #SummerReading Book Drive. We are partnering with Sedgefield Elementary School to collect books for rising 2nd grade students. Help us reach our goal of giving each child a summer reading book! Please share widely!
You can have books shipped to the school or drop them by yourself. You can also drop them by the VA BLOC Headquarters!

This Mother‘s Day we remember and celebrate the mothers who have historically and continue to be at the forefront of advocating for their children and communities. Being a mother is the most important job in the world, one that not even a billion dollar salary could compensate for! While being a mother is one of the hardest jobs, it is also one of the most rewarding! Although one day doesn’t suffice for all of the sacrifices that you make, today we would like to acknowledge those sacrifices and thank you for everything! This Mother‘s Day we would like to pause to celebrate all the moms for always looking out for their children, being our first examples for what advocacy looks like. Thank you to the mothers of the world, who despite any circumstance, continue to fight for their children and community. The true definition of a mother is not just biological but spiritual. Thank you to all of the mothers and mother figures who fight for the rest of us! We can never fully repay you, but we hope this post shows that we understand and love you. You are appreciated!!!!
