Virginia Young Democrats To Push for Medically-Accurate Sex Education

Richmond, VA --  On Monday, February 5th, the Virginia House Education Committee will consider House Bill 159, sponsored by Del. Sam Rasoul.

The legislation requires that every locality in Virginia offer sex education courses that are medically accurate.

"This is a common sense bill that will give students real, medically-accurate facts so they can make healthy decisions," said VAYD President James Lewis.

The most important thing we can do on the issues that matter to us is elect Democrats!

Dear friends,

I can’t believe we only have three weekends left before the election. I guess summer really is over.

Now that everyone is back and settled into the post-summer routine, we’ll be restarting these emails. As always, please send suggestions on how this can be most helpful.

What I Did on My Summer Vacation – VAYD Style
What a summer! After the primary, we started organizing for the joint campaign, canvassing neighborhoods and registering voters.

Dear friends,

Whooah! What a week – a month – six months. I really can’t believe 45 has been in office for six months. He’s done a ton of damage but his legislative achievements are mostly nil. The resistance is working, we just need to keep it up.

Here at VAYD, we are organizing and raising the needed resources to fight back. Thank you to everyone who came out for our house party with DNC Chairman Tom Perez! It was a great event and will allow us to make major investments in electing Democrats this November.
