Hero: The LIberal Women of Chesterfield County

In Virginia’s November 7 election, Chesterfield County voted for the Democrat candidate for Governor for the first time since 1961. The Liberal Women of Chesterfield County led those votes.

Progress is possible everywhere in Virginia, and your vote, your participation, your activism, can make the difference.

Zero: Jeanine Lawson

Anti-equality Brentsville Supervisor in Prince William County Jeanine Lawson took it upon herself to disrespect families across the commonwealth, telling a teenager with two moms that she deserves a father.

We’re not sure if this is more narrow-minded, bigoted, or anti-family but we know we are not fans.
