Last week, thanks to the support of pro-choice voters across the Commonwealth, Virginians elected pro-choice Terry McAuliffe and Ralph Northam as our next governor and lieutenant governor! And with Mark Herring in the lead to become our next attorney general, Virginia is on the verge of having elected a pro-choice statewide ticket for the first time in decades!
This is definitely something to celebrate. Help us thank Terry McAuliffe, Ralph Northam and Mark Herring for standing with Virginia women throughout the 2013 election cycle!
But even as we applaud the amazing success of our pro-choice candidates, we know that there is still work to be done – especially at the legislative level – to make choice a reality for all Virginians. That’s why we want to hear from you right now. What are your hopes for a pro-choice Virginia?
Fill out our survey now and tell us your top pro-choice priorities. We’ll use your input to inform our work ahead – and share your hopes with our newly elected Governor, LG, and AG!
Here’s just a few of our hopes for a pro-choice Virginia:
