On Wednesday, just days before the House passed historic health care legislation, I tagged along with the Virginia Organizing Project (VOP) and residents from all over Virginia as they visited Capitol Hill to share their personal health care stories with their Senators and Representatives. You can read more about it in our written report from the day, but today we present you with our video coverage:

The emphasis of this trip was to have Virginia residents share their personal stories with Congress. So what would our coverage be without those personal stories?

Donna’s Story:

The Virginia Organizing Project is still calling on folks to contact their legislatures. And while not everyone can drive to DC like Virginia residents can, you can still pick up a phone or write a letter.

Visit Sum of Change for more coverage, and don’t forget to check back tomorrow for Training Tuesday with the DFA where Matt Blizek will bring us tips on running a successful email program!
