We have many issues affecting our local communities as well as the Commonwealth of Virginia and country. We must ensure local jurisdictions provide protections for our transgender family and friends, offer a welcoming environment for our immigrant neighbors, ensure all in our community are housing and food secure, and act boldly as we address climate change. We need to ensure we work towards equity and equality with compassion and integrity.
Moving our compassion to action is essential. I hope you will join me on this journey to create a better world one neighborhood at a time; to create community one friend at a time!
