Virginia NOW Endorses Barbara Favola
Virginia NOW (the Virginia Chapter of the National Organization for Women) thanks you for your outstanding leadership on behalf of women's concerns and is pleased to endorse your re-election to the Senate.
While we agree that “all issues are women’s issues,” there are - as you know - numerous issues that directly impact women’s lives, including reproductive health, health care services, safe and accessible childcare, economic equality, and reduction of domestic, sexual and gun violence directed at women. It is critical to have active advocacy on behalf of these and other issues and we thank you for all you have done to heighten awareness of these issues.
In the 2016 session of the General Assembly, we will continue to press for reform of testing of rape kits (PERKs, physical evidence recovery kits). We will support redistricting reform. We will continue working for passage of the Equal Rights Amendment in Virginia.
We look forward to continuing to work with you.
