Why This Project?

The face of Virginia is changing. We’re home to New Americans from around the globe, a rapidly growing high tech economy, and dynamic communities of color. Yet a snapshot of state leaders-- legislative,  institutional, and civic--shows how far we still need to go. New people and new ideas are the product of individual and collective work. With this in mind, we are proud to announce the Virginia Progressive Leadership Project.

The Virginia Progressive Leadership Project will invest in leaders who reflect the changing face of Virginia. This new generation of progressive leaders will move us forward towards a commonwealth that works for everyone, and that reflects our values.
