Each Wednesday at noon, we hold a twitter chat using the hashtag #LibertyChatVA focusing on one of the American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia’s issue areas. To get our followers started thinking about questions, we publish a blog in advance discussing the issue. Join us Wednesday at noon for our #LibertyChatVA! Hope R. Amezquita, Staff Attorney & Legislative Counsel
