Engage Norfolk Attracts Hundreds

Engage Norfolk was held February 12 from 1 – 5 p.m. at the Academy for Discovery at Lakewood and included workshops on how to be a more effective citizen lobbyist. The occasion also offered opportunities to learn about and team up with local organizations whose programs are ongoing in Norfolk.

Before the event, Councilwoman McClellan said, ”This event will provide a means for individuals to channel their energy into making a positive change in Norfolk and beyond.”

Engage Norfolk was also organized by Pilot Media publication and supported by the New Journal and Guide, the YMCA, and Volunteer Hampton Roads.

More than 100 local organizations representing political, social justice, civic activism, community outreach and support, and more were on hand in the school’s gym and its corridors to pass out information and recruit volunteers.

The event was free and open to the public.
