WOFA is considering adopting 2 of 3 VA congressional districts this year. The districts are 2 (Luria – HOLD), 7 (Spanberger – HOLD) or 5 (Dem primary – FLIP). Tell us which district you want to support!! Due to COVID, we aren’t sure exactly what our activities will be but as in previous years, we will be working closely with the campaign and other grassroots organizations.

In the meantime, postcards, letter writing and phone banking efforts are underway for VA as well as for other states—see more on these efforts at this link “ONGOING EFFORTS.”
