Jennifer has a long record of standing up for working families in Virginia, and she’s ready to take that fight to Washington. She knows that we all do better when the least of us succeeds.Jennifer knows that all Americans deserve the same health care our members of Congress enjoy.

She will fight to empower women and protect the civil rights of every person regardless of race, religion, gender identity or creed. She believes in tearing down institutionalized racism, in improving government accountability, and in the importance of elected leaders that listen to and care about their constituents, no matter who they are.

I would like to be your voice in Congress. I pledge to work on your behalf with others to find reasonable solutions to the complex but truly solvable issues that face our state and our nation. There are many issues that need addressing. We need more teachers to help educate our future leaders. Virginia teachers are paid below the national average salary. Mental Health and the ability for these individuals to get the help they need and to be able to become as productive and engaged as possible. Or future generations should be able to enjoy the same clean and safe environment as we have been able to. I believe in Protect and Correct – Protect whats right and correct whats wrong.
