Hala Ayala is running for State Senate District 33 because she understands the struggle Virginia families are facing right now. As Delegate, she made progress, bringing down healthcare costs, protecting reproductive rights, and making communities safer. But Glenn Youngkin and Republicans in Richmond are trying to take us backward. She will get our Commonwealth moving forward once again for families in Prince William and Fairfax Counties.
