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.
We organize within Latinx, African American, Asian American Pacific Islander and youth communities, centering the leadership and demands of working class women of color. Together, we vote, mobilize and engage to end mass incarceration, build just economic policies, protect immigrants and preserve the environment.
New Virginia Majority is a leader in the movement for transformative change. Since 2015, we have registered more than 200,000 Virginia voters and knocked on over 1 million doors. Last year, we brought in a more representative legislature, which helped us to finally expand Medicaid to nearly 400,000 people. And 2016, we succeeded in restoring voting rights to thousands of formerly incarcerated people in Virginia.
