The Democratic Party of Virginia’s 4th Annual Barbara Johns Panel and Fundraiser will celebrate the life and legacy of Barbara Johns and shine a light on the important work still being done by Democrats around the Commonwealth and nation to ensure the civil rights of all Americans. We are honored to host both events at the Black History Museum & Cultural Center.

The panel, which is free to the public, will feature Eric H. Holder Jr. the 82nd Attorney General of the United States and stakeholders from around the Commonwealth to discuss the ongoing fight to ensure civil rights for all Virginians, their work towards racial justice, and how these experiences shaped them into the leaders they are today.
