Event description

Description

Join us for an opportunity to learn about the crucial importance of state legislatures, and to meet our candidate, Alex Askew! Alex, candidate for the 85th District of the Virginia House of Delegates (Virginia Beach), will join us by Skype at 7:45 pm.

Alex was born and raised in Virginia Beach by his mother, a public school teacher, and has remained deeply engaged in his community. After graduating from Hampton University, Alex worked on many legislative campaigns, and then worked as a policy and legislative analyst for the Virginia House of Delegates. Now he is working to win one of the most competitive state legislative seats in Virginia.

Democrats are just one seat down in both the Virginia House of Delegates and the Virginia Senate. Sister District is helping candidates like Alex win so we can flip both houses of the legislature blue. This goal is within reach, but it will not be easy—and it is crucial, as Virginia is one of the most gerrymandered states in the country. The legislature that is elected in 2019 will redraw district maps for the next decade.

This event is free, and we hope you will come regardless of your capacity to contribute, if you plan to support Alex's campaign activities this year. However, our goal is to raise significant funds for Alex's campaign and there will be an opportunity to donate via ActBlue after we hear from Alex.

If you cannot make it, but would like to support Alex, you can do so at this link.
