New Pro-Choice Legislator Profile: Mark Levine, District 45

Meet Pro-Choice Delegate Mark Levine, District 45 (3)

Welcome Delegate-Elect Mark Levine to the Virginia General Assembly!  Levine will serve the 45th District, representing Alexandria and Arlington counties. He is a bold, progressive leader who has spent his career protecting marginalized communities.

Levine demonstrates a strong commitment to progressive principles. He served as Precinct Captain for the Alexandria Democratic Committee, where he fought tirelessly to elect pro-choice candidates. Levine also worked as a Voter Protection Attorney combating the voter suppression tactics of the GOP. Whether representing the Congressional Black Caucus in their 2000 election challenge, serving as Legislative Counsel to iconic Democratic leader Barney Frank, or discussing critical issues on his talk radio show, Levine consistently raises his voice for progressive values.

 Levine’s legislative accomplishments illustrate his dedication to advancing the rights of women and families. Levine’s efforts ensured passage of a Virginia law to protect survivors of domestic violence. In addition, he fought to end federal funding to charities that perpetuate employment discrimination. He is a fierce defender of women’s rights who will push back against attacks on a woman’s right to access an abortion.

NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia was proud to endorse Levine and to encourage our members to support his candidacy. We are thrilled to welcome Mark Levine to the House of Delegates and look forward to working with him for years to come!
