Commemorating Virginia’s Complex 400-Year History in Jamestown
July 29, 2019
My term as Lt. Governor has coincided with two very important milestones that are now 400 years old. These two milestones -- the first representative body in the English-speaking New World and the first landing in Virginia of enslaved Africans -- highlight the twin threads that have been woven into the fabric of Virginia’s history.
At the end of July, the Lieutenant Governor had the pleasure of visiting the great people of Southwest Virginia and participating in a number of events including the United Mine Workers’ 30th Commemoration of the Pittston Coal Strike, a local food drive event, and meet and greet at the Appalachian African American Cultural Center.
We sincerely appreciate your request. Please note that due to the high volume of invitations we receive, we are unable to accommodate all requests.
Please submit all event requests at least 3 weeks prior to the event date. We are unable to confirm the Lt. Governor’s availability prior to 6-8 weeks before an event.
Please do not use Lt. Governor Fairfax's name on any invitations, agendas, or promotional materials for your event until you receive approval from the Office of Lt. Governor Justin E. Fairfax. Thank you!
