Delegate Hala Ayala Introduces 2021 Legislative Agenda Focused on Virginia’s Working Families

“As a single mom who was trying to make ends meet working at a gas station when my first child was born, I know the struggles that a lot of our families are facing right now because I’ve lived them,” said Ayala. “That is why I am focusing this session on passing legislation that will provide much-needed support during the crisis and ensure more families have the economic security they need as we recover.”

Del. Hala Ayala’s Statement on Violence in Our Nation's Capital

This is an attack on our Democracy and everything our country stands for. President Trump has undermined our security, threatened our Constitution, and endangered public servants.

Thank you to the Capitol Police and all law enforcement officials who put themselves in danger to protect everyone who works in our U.S Capitol. 

I am grateful for Governor Northam’s leadership and actions to help keep our nation's Capitol safe. We need leaders who are willing to put our country above politics to do what is right.

Delegate Hala Ayala Endorses Delegate Kathleen Murphy for Re-election

As her colleague, I’ve seen how Delegate Kathleen Murphy is a fierce champion for Virginians. In her community and in the General Assembly, Kathleen advocates for veterans, military families, and transportation solutions, protects women’s rights, and promotes gun sense policies. We need Delegate Murphy’s pragmatic approach to progressive policymaking, which is why I am proud to endorse her.

I am proud to endorse Briana Sewell for the 51st House District. I’ve watched Briana grow as a leader in this community and I know she will be a champion for the 51st District. In Richmond, she will continue to move Virginia forward and fight for working families by improving transit, fully funding public schools, and increasing access to affordable healthcare.
