With U.S. Representative Jim Moran retiring, there will be a primary election June 10 to nominate the Democratic candidate from the 8th congressional district. If you’re in the 8th CD, you have the opportunity to support and vote for long-time NOW member and feminist activist Charniele Herring.
The women of NOW – Alexandria, Arlington, Northern Virginia and Vienna Area – invite you to meet Charniele this Saturday, March 8, in Alexandria and find out why we’re so excited about her candidacy. Not only that – national NOW President Terry O’Neill will be with us and this is a great opportunity to talk with her. If you can’t come Saturday, there are other ways to get involved – join “Women for Charniele” and/or volunteer for her campaign. And for sure, please vote for her June 10.
Let’s make history together and elect Charniele to Congress!
Bring a check to the event or donate online!

There is a large field of candidates in this race and many support issues of major concern for Virginia women. While we salute them, we believe that Charniele Herring is exceptional among them and the best candidate. Charniele will bring her dedication and years of experience to Congress – with women, children and families at the top of her agenda.
Charniele will fill an important void in Virginia. Not a single woman is among Virginia’s 11-member Congressional delegation. Not a single woman is among Virginia’s statewide offices – held by stellar progressive men, in large part due to the votes of young people, unmarried single women and women of color.
