The National Organization for Women (NOW) PAC Endorses Delegate Charniele Herring for Virginia’s 8th Congressional District

VA NOW PAC endorsed Delegate Herring, and now National NOW seconds that motion!

February 4, 2014

The National NOW PAC announces its endorsement of Delegate Charniele Herring of Alexandria for the Democratic nomination in the 8th Congressional District.

NOW congratulates Delegate Herring for her legislative achievements and her leadership in advancing an inclusive society. As a Virginia NOW member, Delegate Herring exemplifies the values we fight for – equality and justice for all. Her historic victory in her first delegate race – in which she was shamefully sidelined while an unnecessary recount went on – demonstrated her determination to overcome racism and sexism. Delegate Herring will be a United States congresswoman we can all be proud of.

NOW – the National Organization for Women  – is the largest organization of feminist activists in the United States. Since its founding in 1966, NOW has taken action to bring about equality for all women. NOW works to eliminate discrimination and harassment in the workplace, schools, the justice system, and all other sectors of society; secure reproductive rights for all women; end all forms of violence against women; eradicate racism, sexism and homophobia; and promote equality and justice in our society.

It’s time to pay attention to the Virginia Governor’s race!
Working women and feminism… “detrimental” to the traditional family.
Government should “prefer married couples over co-habitators, homosexuals, or fornicators.”
Birth control for unmarried couples… “illogical.”
Childcare subsidies… encourage women to enter the workforce.
Separation of church and state…. “folklore.”

These sentiments were written by Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Bob McDonnell just two years before he ran for the Virginia House of Delegates. We knew Bob McDonnell was no friend of equality, but an enemy? That’s right! McDonnell’s agenda for public service would reverse much of what NOW has fought so hard for. We need to stop him. More
