“From passing her bill to expand broadband access to successfully working to expand Medicaid for 400,000 Virginians, Hala Ayala has proven herself a tenacious advocate for policymaking rooted in science,” said Shaughnessy Naughton, President of 314 Action. “Hala will continue to fight for the people of Virginia as the state’s lieutenant governor, promoting facts and evidence-based solutions to the most pressing issues facing Virginians.”
“Virginia played a crucial role in delivering the Presidency to Joe Biden and rebuking the hate and bigotry of Trump,” said Delegate Hala Ayala. These activists worked tirelessly to make this happen and I am so honored to have their support. They understand that we need leaders who will build bridges and unite our Commonwealth and I can’t wait to work with them on issues that matter most to Virginians.”
Delegate Hala Ayala spoke on the House floor in observance of Black History Month on Friday afternoon honoring Black women who are facing a national emergency in the midst of COVID-19. Ayala, who is an Afro-Latina running for Lieutenant Governor and would be the first woman of color elected statewide in Virginia, was endorsed last week by Higher Heights, the only political action committee exclusively dedicated to electing more Black women.
