OUR MISSION

JUNTOS POR VIRGINIA is dedicated to building Latino political resilience, power, and representation so that our community's diverse voices, values, and concerns are reflected in elected and appointed offices throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.

 

WE WILL WORK TOWARDS:

  • Achieving proportionate representation of Latinos in elected office,

  • Building a pipeline for Latino leadership across the Commonwealth,

  • Increasing Latino representation in appointed positions,

  • Engaging Latinos in policy conversations that go beyond immigration, and

  • Embracing the full diversity of the Latino community.

OUR VISION

Latinos in Virginia make up nearly 11% of the population yet we are not represented at this level across elected offices in the Commonwealth. It’s time to change that!

 

From the 2016 and 2020 Presidential elections to the Gubernatorial and General Assembly elections, Latino representation has been instrumental in advancing key policies that make not only our community better, but that of all Virginians. Latino demographics have fundamentally changed, but our elected representation has yet to reflect this.

IN OVER 400 YEARS VIRGINIA HAS YET TO;

  • Elect a Latino Mayor to any city of the Commonwealth

  • Elect a Latino to the Virginia Senate

  • Elect a Latino to represent Virginia in the U.S. House of Representatives

  • Elect a Latino to represent Virginia in the U.S. Senate

  • Elect a Latino as Governor of Virginia
