TWW Adopt a Candidate

2017-2018 Elections Committee Meeting

One of TWWNoVA's next initiatives is going to be “Adopt a Candidate.” The Democratic Caucus has identified at least 70 progressives to run in the upcoming General Assembly elections and there are hopefully more to come! I have reached out to the Dems and suggested that TWWNoVA could help by creating small task forces to work directly with each candidate’s campaign in “purple” districts. They thought that was a great idea.

So committee members, please email me ( to sign up for a task force for one of the following campaigns. It would be great if you live in the district of the candidate, but most of us don’t, so please just sign up for a campaign that interests you. If you don’t have a preference, let me know and I will assign you to a campaign. Please note that in some cases there is more than one democrat running in a district. For now, we will follow all of the campaigns and determine which candidates have platforms we agree with.

We will discuss the role of the task forces in more detail at our next Committee Meeting on February 23rd at 7:00pm, Boccato Gelato, 2719 Wilson Blvd, Arlington, VA 22201. If you cannot attend the meeting, I will keep you updated via email.

Thanks for all of your ongoing work to help flip seats in VA! - Luisa
