December 8th, Virginia Dems Support ERA Ratification

The Central Committee of the Democratic Party of Virginia met on December 8th, and one of its business items was consideration of a resolution in support of ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment (#ERA) in the Virginia General Assembly in 2019. The Resolution passed unanimously and resoundingly by a voice vote of the 300 + committee & caucus members present.

Passage of the Resolution followed celebratory comments from elected officials: 

Governor Ralph Northam vowed to support education, expand Medicaid coverage, and bring benefits from the Amazon HQ2 deal to every locality in Virginia. 

Senator Mark Warner described the work of the Senate Intelligence Committee, on which he is the ranking member,  in ferreting out the security gaps in our institutions.

Congresswoman-elect Abigail Spaniberger (VA 7th) vowed to give voice to everyday issues families face.
