2022 Legislative Agenda

New Virginia Majority (NVM) launched in 2007 with the audacious goal of building a bloc of conscious, consistent voters to advance a new politic rooted in the needs and struggles of working-class people of color, immigrants, women, and young people. Despite the outcome of the
November 2021 general elections, our priorities have not changed.

We remain steadfast in our commitment to building the people power needed to create more equitable political systems that truly work for all of us and advancing policies that address the legacy and ongoing impact of racial and economic injustice in the Commonwealth.

For more than a decade, we have made significant strides to create a Virginia that reflects the values of the Latinx, African American, Asian American Pacific Islander, and youth communities that we organize with year-round. The expansion of Medicaid, ensuring people are not evicted
from their homes during a pandemic, making it easier for all eligible Virginians to vote, establishing Virginians' right to environmental justice, and advancing rights restoration are a few examples of major victories that we have worked on and gotten passed in the legislature.

In order to build a Virginia that centers the policy demands and everyday needs of working-class communities of color, we will work with our allies and legislators to fiercely protect and defend the progress we have made to improve the lives of Virginia families. Our 2022 legislative agenda
is the next step in the progression of our Ten Year Vision and a reflection of the bold actions that are required to create a Virginia that is welcoming to all who call it home.
