Our team of 24 runners, the Just-Us Runners, will run the Great American 5000k and have committed to raising $1 for every 1k we run. All funds donated will go directly to suppport the work of the New Virginia Majority. The New Virginia Majority relies on contributions to help support a fair and progressive future for Virginia.
Working class communities of color have been shut out, silenced and ignored in Virginia, fueling widespread injustice in the state. New Virginia Majority builds the power of marginalized communities to change the political systems that aren’t working for us. The New Virginia Majority organizes within Latinx, African American, Asian American Pacific Islander and youth communities, centering the leadership and demands of working class people of color. Together, we vote, mobilize and engage to end mass incarceration, build just economic policies, protect immigrants and preserve the environment.
As runners, we were called to put our passion to use and do more than just run. This time we run for a cause.
