Prince William County Supervisor Jeanine Lawson and Fairfax County Supervisor Pat Herrity Host a virtual town hall to address panhandling in Northern Virginia, called, “What Should Northern Virginia Be Doing About Panhandling.” 

Virtual Town Hall is scheduled for August 17, 7- 8:30 p.m. It will be broadcast live on Channel 15 (Fairfax TV) and streamed on Facebook Live (see Supervisor Lawson’s Facebook page.)

In their dedication to addressing pressing concerns within the community, Prince William Supervisor Jeanine Lawson and Fairfax County Supervisor Pat Herrity are pleased to extend an invitation to a virtual town hall event centered around the escalating issue of panhandling in Northern Virginia.

Panhandling has prompted community leaders from Fairfax County and Prince William to come together to explore viable solutions. The virtual town hall will provide a platform for an open dialogue among residents aiming to tackle this multifaceted issue with a shared approach.

“Panhandling impacts our community on multiple levels, and addressing it requires collective effort. This town hall presents an opportunity for us to come together, learn about available resources, and collaborate on finding effective solutions,” Supervisor Lawson stated.

With a strong commitment to community well-being, Supervisor Lawson is actively engaged in finding innovative ways to tackle tough issues and enhance the quality of life for all PWC residents.

The event will include an interactive session where residents are encouraged to share their valuable perspectives, ideas, and feedback. The ultimate goal is to forge a path toward a safer and more supportive Northern Virginia.

Residents interested in participating in this crucial conversation can tune in to the live broadcast on Channel 16 or join the streaming on Facebook Live.

Questions and feedback can be submitted by calling 703-324-1114, emailing inquiries to [email protected], or engaging through comments on the Facebook Live stream.
