We have 3 months until the midterm elections, and right now I’m pretty far from reaching my July fundraising target. I’m working with Virginia Democrats throughout our commonwealth to make sure we don’t lose any more ground this November.     Friend,   We have 3…

tomorrow is Friday

Even though technically our mid-month fundraising deadline is tomorrow, I decided to send this email out today so you don’t have to deal with a fundraising email on a Friday. If we can raise another $2,395, we’ll hit our target. Can you help?     Friend, Even t…

my numbers

I know there are a lot of real issues that Americans are facing right now, and the GOP has made it clear they have no interest in helping. With the unprecedented move of SCOTUS to, for the first time in American history, actually REMOVE decades-old rights from Americans – there is a lot to cons…

Roe v. Wade

Black History

As Black History Month comes to an end, I think it is important that we not only look to our city’s past – but to our future as well. Richmond’s Black History is complicated. We were once the capital of the Confederacy, and now a Black man is your Mayor. Our landscape once paid homage to monume…
