Virginia Campaign for a Family Friendly Economy Releases Pre-Primary “Family Friendly Seal of Approval” Scorecards

RICHMOND — Today, with one week left in the 2021 primary season and as we head into the final Democratic gubernatorial debate this evening, the Virginia Campaign for a Family Friendly Economy awarded its “Family Friendly Seal of Approval” to three candidates for governor, six for lieutenant governor and dozens of House of Delegates candidates for their support of critical family-friendly workplace policies.

Candidates who are being awarded the “Family Friendly Seal of Approval” are certified by VA-CFFE to be champions of family friendly economic policy, notably:

  • Paid Family and Medical Leave;
  • Paid Sick Days;
  • Quality Childcare; and
  • Affordable Elder Care

“Now more than ever, Virginians need to know where candidates for office stand on issues like paid family and medical leave, which will be critical to the public health and economic recovery from COVID,” said Kristina Hagen, director of the Virginia Campaign for a Family Friendly Economy. “Families across the Commonwealth are demanding these policies. The Family Friendly Candidate Seal of Approval is designed to help voters identify and support candidates who will stand up for the needs of their families.”

The Family Friendly Seal of Approval is available to all candidates running for statewide office and for the House of Delegates, meaning that more than one candidate in a race can receive it. The Family Friendly Seal of Approval does not constitute an endorsement from VA CFFE and does not signal financial support from VA CFFE. VA CFFE will not make endorsements in primary races. Only candidates who have received the Family Friendly Seal of Approval will be considered for future general election endorsements. For candidates facing a nominating contest, the deadline to submit the VA-CFFE questionnaire was Friday, April 30. For all remaining candidates, the deadline is this Friday, June 4. Statewide candidates are listed below alphabetically; House of Delegates candidates are listed by district.
