Defenders in the News

The last few months have been an interesting time for the Defenders, media-wise. There have been interviews with PBS (deaths in Virginia prisons), Virginia Public Media (reclaiming Shockoe Bottom), the AP (the new marriage protection act), PressTV-Iran (the U.S. midterm elections) and By Any Means Necessary-Sputnik (Youngkin’s Operation Bold Blue Line Initiative). And of course, we were mentioned several times in The Virginia Defender, Virginia’s leading source for anti-racist, working-class news and analysis.
