What’s at Stake in Virginia
Dems must flip three seats in the House of Delegates and hold onto (or build) their slim majority in the State Senate. The people elected in November will be in place during the next redistricting cycle, which means this election has consequences not only for Virginians but for citizens across the country who demand a fair and representative Congress.

Climate Cabinet Action and
State Senate Candidate Schuyler VanValkenburg
Climate Cabinet Action helps local leaders run, win, and legislate on climate change. From critical funding to field or communications services, CCA provides pro-climate candidates with the tools they need to win elections and then enact science-based environmental policies that are proven to make a difference. In 2023, they are working hard to elect climate champions in Virginia.
The Climate Cabinet has endorsed Schuyler VanValkenburg, an 18-year career teacher in Henrico County and a three-term Delegate in the Virginia House, who is now running in a must-win race for the VA State Senate. According to Blair St. Ledger-Olson, CCA’s Legislative Director, “Had it not been for the Virginia Senate’s pro-climate majority, the state’s standing as being the climate leaders of the South would have been erased.”
In 2019, our victories meant that Virginia became a leader in the clean energy transition, passing major climate bills into law. Now, we have the chance to build on that success.
Lean Left Vermont builds a stronger, more just democracy by empowering Vermont activists to work on behalf of voters in other states. We promote meaningful, sustained actions that focus on supporting and protecting the vote and building democratic power at the local, state, and federal levels.
