Hampton Roads Black Leaders to Set the Record Straight on Upcoming Elections Press Conference
With only twenty-seven days left before Election Day on November 2, Black leaders will speak in detail on the importance of electing Terry McAuliffe Governor, Del. Hala Ayala Lt. Governor and re-electing Mark Herring Attorney General. The leaders will also outline the policy importance of Democrats maintaining control of the House of Delegates.
The leaders will also set the record straight and end confusion related to the “Hampton Roads Black Caucus,” who announced an endorsement of Republican Glenn Youngkin last weekend. This would clearly take Virginia’s Black communities backwards.
The leaders listed below, who have been working in Black communities in Hampton Roads for decades, will lay out the current state of play in the communities on jobs, education, health care, housing, justice reform and the COVID pandemic.
“The Black leaders below will outline why Glenn Youngkin is dangerously out of step with Virginians on COVID-19 and other policies,” said Maurice Hawkins, who is the Greater Hampton Roads Black Democrats Political Action Chair.
“This isn’t about partisan-politics, it’s about principles and the needs of Black Virginians,” Hawkins added.
