Join the ALL IN to Win Virginia Festival

8 mins read

All of our summits have been celebrations of our shared commitment to progressive values. And this one will be too. So I’ll start by thanking you for helping to strengthen our democracy by electing officials who care about creating a fairer economy, eliminating racial injustice and gender inequality, fighting damaging climate changes, enacting common sense gun laws, protecting women’s reproductive rights, improving our schools and much more.

Thanks to you and others we’ve made gainsBut even those wins feel at risk now.

Despite the largest turnout of progressive and Democratic voters ever in Virginia, we lost key state seats in 2021 and now we face losing our hard won seats in Congress!

We must hold onto the House of Representatives and we, in Virginia, have a critical role to play. This year we have to generate record turnout by the most strategic planning, communication and coordination we have ever achieved. We need to involve as many Democratic and progressive Virginians as possible across our state in our Summits to better collaborate, share wisdom, inspire each other and propel a new energy towards November 2022 elections.

Will you join us and invite others who you know that care about what is happening in Virginia?

Women’s Summit 2022 ALL IN to Win Virginia, a festival of determination and action will kick off our in-person events in Northern Virginia June 24-25.  We are encouraging those coming from out of town to book today (the last day for our room block at Dunn Loring Marriott)

Along with our fabulous in-person events we are excited about the ALL IN to Win Virginia online platform where, together we will build on the magic we create together during the Women’s Summit. Participants at the Women’s Summit will become members in the ALL IN to Win Virginia community that will launch with the Women’s Summit and continue to grow year long.
