With less than a month to go before the primary, our campaign is taking off! We are thrilled to have the endorsement of the Virginia Chapter of NOW (National Organization for Women). As the only woman in this race during a time when our rights are once again under attack, their endorsement is all the more important.
NOW seeks out candidates like Alicia, who believe strongly in economic justice, including fair and equal pay, living wages, and worker benefits. They look for candidates like Alicia who believe in constitutional equality for women through the support of the ERA. And they back candidates like Alicia, who are fighting against discrimination in all areas, including employment, housing, and health services.
Representation matters at all levels of government, and in light of current news attacking women’s rights nationally, this endorsement is particularly exciting to receive. It is critical that women, people of color, and under-represented people see a future where they too are represented in their communities.
We are grateful to receive the support of the Virginia Chapter of NOW and are proud to identify with their strong platform of equality and inclusion.
