This Wednesday, April 27th, is the fourth annual Virginia March for Life in Richmond! Please read the below details carefully for an important update.
Due to underground construction of the capitol grounds, the March for Life Rally at 11:00 am ET will be moved from the capitol steps to the nearby bell tower on the lawn of Capitol Square. Please see the image below for reference.
