Frontline county employees — from first responders to mental health workers, librarians to nurses — have kept us healthy and safe during the pandemic. Now it’s time to support them! Right now, both Fairfax and Loudoun counties are debating whether or not these employees should have collective bargaining rights and a seat at the table to negotiate good jobs and great services. Here’s how you can help:
In Fairfax: CLICK HERE to email the Board of Supervisors AND join a rally outside the Fairfax County Government Center on October 5th at 3:00 pm
In Loudoun: CLICK HERE to email the Board of Supervisors AND join a rally outside the Loudoun County Government Center on October 13th at 5:00 pm

Statewide Virtual Rally – THE POWER OF WOMEN – hosted by Senator Jennifer McClellan and the unstoppable grassroots women of Virginia. Lt Gov Candidate Hala Ayala, Congresswoman Elaine Luria and other Virginia women leaders (TBA) will discuss what is at stake in our approaching election: our fundamental rights, including funds/wages, voting, reproductive and healthcare!
We know everything is on the line this election: our rights, our progress, our democracy. There is no limit to what we as women can accomplish together. This is our Power. We are invincible, we are strong, we are women!
When women rally we make it fun. We’ll have prizes, special guests, an inspirational opening poem by Dorri Scott, toe tapping tunes from social justice songwriter Crys Matthews, and more. You know with Network NOVA producing the Rally, it will be full of surprises.
Here is the Rally registration link.
