Assistant Director of Programs at the University of Virginia's Center for Politics, Holly Hatcher (Political Leaders Program Class of 2004), is the co-founder of a new group in Charlottesville called "Left of Center."

According to Holly, the organization will work to network twenty and thirtysomething local Democrats or "dem-curious people" with the aim of engaging them in local issues and party activities.

As Holly states, "Our party will be stronger with more diversity and will remain strong if we start now to cultivate future leadership."

A kick off event was held recently at which nearly 100 people attended.

GenXers, Where Are You?

Richmond City Councilor Jackie Jackson (Political Leaders Program Class of 2002) is the author of a recent commentary in the Richmond Times-Dispatch titled "Generational Changes."

In the article Jackie challenges twenty and thirtysomethings to accept the mantle of leadership in our communities. She writes, "GenXers, where are you? Get involved with your community or
neighborhood. Spend some quality time with a child or your children
weekly. Enjoy a family meal without television. Be the positive role
model that so many of our young people need to see. Spend one hour a
week mentoring a young person. Listen to our youth; they do have
something positive to say."
