Sean Perryman, President of Virginia’s largest NAACP chapter and a longtime policy advocate for social justice and equity, today announced the formation of an “exploratory committee” to officially consider a bid for Lt. Governor of Virginia in 2021.
“Our nation and Commonwealth are in a period of crisis and our leaders are failing us,” said Perryman. “People are discouraged, disillusioned, and, in many cases, suffering. We must do a better job of responding to these crises and find more creative and effective ways to help everyday people not only get by but achieve their full potential.”
An attorney, advocate, activist and substantive policy expert, Perryman, 34, has been a dedicated and strategic fighter for truth in government and for public policies centered in equity, transparency, and inclusion. Among his top priorities are equitable access to a good education for all Virginians, no matter where they live; economic empowerment to stimulate growth and eliminate racial and social disparities; and reforms to ensure the dignity and humanity of people who interact with our criminal justice system.
Perryman said: “In the coming weeks I will meet with people across the Commonwealth to explore their dreams and challenges, and in turn I will share how my goals for Virginia, my approach to public policy, and my credentials and background are well-suited for 21st Century Virginia.”
