Alexandria, Va. – NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia congratulates Delegate Hala Ayala on her historic win in the Democratic Primary for lieutenant governor of Virginia.
“On behalf of NARAL Virginia, I am thrilled to offer our congratulations to Hala Ayala on her primary win. Hala has championed equal rights, consistently supported the fight for reproductive freedom, and has been a steadfast advocate for maternal health in the Commonwealth,” says Executive Director Tarina Keene.
“Our reproductive rights and freedoms are under attack every day at the national and state level, and we need reproductive freedom champions like Hala, who we can count on to protect the rights of all Virginians. As Lt. Governor and President of the Senate, she will wield great power as the tiebreaker. We know we can count her to always stand up for reproductive freedom.”
NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia is prepared to mobilize the full force of our grassroots community to elect Hala Ayala as the first Afro-Latina lieutenant governor in the United States on November 2nd.
During the primary, NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia worked with our volunteers and partners to make protecting reproductive rights a key issue in this election and to get out the vote for pro-choice voters. We will continue educating voters and mobilizing support for our endorsed candidates through the November General Election.
