I've heard many photographers groan when they have to cover a local meeting, but I'm a sucker for photographing a good meeting. There is something timeless about community meetings - in an age where people can organize themselves online, I like the fact that people still gather around a table and talk to other people in their community about issues.

Here are a few pics from a meeting at the Virginia Organization Project - the topic of the meeting was restoring voting rights to former felons in Virginia. Virginia and Kentucky are the only two states that don't automatically restore voting rights to ex-felons. The top photo is of the meeting organizer, Harold Folley.
