  • Promote fairness and transparency in our elections and politics.
  • Create environmentally healthy communities and protect against the impact of climate change.
  • Make Virginia safer and healthier for all, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Promote equity, support our workforce, and advance the rights of all Virginia residents.
Joining with the Virginia Grassroots Coalition are: 
  • Del. Mark Levine patron of a bill on the National Popular Vote 
  • Sen. Boysko patron of a bill on Paid Family Medical Leave
  • Del. Guzman patron of a bill on Paid Sick Leave
