June 29 was our monthly meeting, and it was another marathon, going from 11:30am to 6:30pm. Thanks to Michelle for pulling it all together for us and even feeding everyone. This is our family and we love every member.
2019 Springtime Rally, Sacramento
April 26 – 27, 2019
People from all over the United States showed up for the “VI” (Victorious Individual) Springtime Rally in Sacramento on April 26 & 27.
We talked to people from Maine, Colorado, Philadelphia, Nevada, Arizona and Texas. We also connected with many people in the Bay Area who have now joined our support group.
Organizers and support group leaders Michelle Hachey and Justin Whitworth worked hard with a team including Lewis Rowe, Dr. Matthew Aaron, Shayla Avants and more for several months to create a meaningful and impactful event.
Highlights included impassioned speeches by Dr. Matthew Aaron and Justin Whitworth and an effective new way to extract information from audio files presented by Amy Holem of Surveillance and Harassment Survivor’s Alliance.
The entire group also marched around the capitol building with signs and chanting. See video by Megan Belmer to the right.
There are more live streams and videos of the speeches on the Meegs B channel, Go Here.
Overall the event was a huge success. Many thanks to Michelle and Justin and all of the people who worked so hard on behalf of all of us.
