Let’s take back the majority in the Virginia General Assembly! We need to elect more Democrats to make progress on many critical issues -- everything from gun violence prevention to environmental protection, healthcare, civil rights, voting rights, women's rights, and other issues. So let's finish the Blue Wave we started in 2017! Your support for the 2019 state House of Delegates and state Senate elections will be critical - even more than in 2017, because there will be no statewide candidates to attract funding and get voters to the polls. 

We are asking you to make monthly contributions through the EveryDistrict PAC to support nominees in 20 Delegate districts and six State Senate districts that Democrats need to hold or flip in 2019. 

Please join individuals from several grassroots groups (WofA, Network NOVA, Nope!, VADF, Arlington Action, and others) to make progressive change a reality.

Select a monthly donation amount for Democratic nominees in selected key districts that will accumulate to a significant stash between now and June 2019. The Act Blue site will be temporarily suspended and no new donors accepted during the January-March 2019 regular session of the General Assembly.

Predetermined Allocations.

Your donation will be shared evenly among the Democratic nominees for these districts, except that Senate districts are allocated twice as much as Delegate districts due to their larger population. With a total of 6 State Senate districts and 20 House of Delegate districts, the suggested donation amounts are in multiples of 32 [i.e.,(20*$1)+(6*$2)].

No OVerhead Costs.

Your entire donation, minus the Act Blue processing fee (3.95%), will go to the Democratic nominees in the selected districts. All design and other operational costs are covered by volunteers.
