Virginia Blue Wave 2019
Focused on Flipping VA General Assembly, electoral politics, gun violence prevention, environmental protection, civil rights, voting rights, women's rights, healthcare
Raising monthly contributions to save or flip 20 delegate seats and 6 senate seats in 2019
This is an ongoing fundraising campaign to take back the majority in the Virginia General Assembly in 2019. We need to elect more Democrats to make progress on critical issues --- gun violence prevention, environmental protection, civil rights, voting rights, healthcare, women's rights, and more. Let's finish what we started in 2017! Donor support for the 2019 state elections will be critical.
This online fundraiser enables donors to make monthly contributions through the EveryDistrict PAC to support nominees in 20 House of Delegate districts and six State Senate districts that Democrats need to hold or flip in 2019:
“Save our ships”: 11 Delegate districts progressives won last year with less than a 10% margin
“Overcome the heartbreaks”: 3 Delegate districts with recounts in 2017
“Unfurl the sails”: 6 other Delegate districts where Northam won in 2017
“Launch the other fleet”: 6 State Senate districts where Northam won or came close in 2017.
Through monthly online donations, contributors can join individuals from grassroots groups to make progressive change a reality. Set it and forget it with a fixed monthly contribution.
Your donations will build up and be sent once the nominees are selected. Your entire donation, minus the Act Blue processing fee, will go to the Democratic nominees in the selected districts. It will be shared evenly, with Senate nominees receiving twice as much as Delegate nominees.
Choose among a range of levels:
“Steady ripple” $16/month “Swell” $32/month
“Breaker” $64/month “Strong surf” $160/month
“Big kahuna” $320/month “Tidal wave” $640/month
or other amount comfortable for you.
Those who donate at least $16/month will be invited to a boat party on August 18. Details at https://www.vabluewave.net/2019/events/
