New Virginia Majority (NVM) works to create a powerful multi-issue, multi-racial movement to transform Virginia through large scale civic engagement, issue advocacy, and strategic communications and community organizing.
Working class communities of color have been shut out, silenced and ignored in Virginia, fueling widespread injustice in the state. NVM builds the power of marginalized communities to change the political systems that aren’t working for us.
NVM organizes within Latinx, African American, Asian American Pacific Islander and youth communities, centering the leadership and demands of working class women of color. Together, they vote, mobilize and engage to end mass incarceration, build just economic policies, protect immigrants and preserve the environment.
New Virginia Majority is a leader in the movement for transformative change. Since 2015, they have registered more than 200,000 Virginia voters and knocked on over 1 million doors. Last year, NVM brought in a more representative legislature, which helped us to finally expand Medicaid to nearly 400,000 people. And in 2016, they succeeded in restoring voting rights to thousands of formerly incarcerated people in Virginia.
