Virginia is at a tipping point. For years, as advocates, we’ve been flooding the General Assembly; telling them our stories and pushing legislators to put their neighbors first. We’ve championed policies allowing Virginians access to quality affordable healthcare, talked about the importance of fully funding our educational system, united to end the existence of the school to prison pipeline and been saddened by the fact that our commonwealth has not ratified the ERA.
Activists have rallied around these issues, nearly flipping the house and bringing our legislature to the brink of historical reforms but there’s more work to do and I’m running to represent Senate District 12 to get that work done!
It’s not going to be easy, we’ll need the support from friends and neighbors throughout our district to fight this fight and bring new leadership to the 12th. I’m ready for the journey, WILL YOU JOIN ME?
Marques knows from firsthand experience the importance of having access to quality affordable health care. He will fight to expand Medicaid and close the coverage gap so that Virginians can benefit from the excellent medical care provided at top institutions across the commonwealth.
Our mothers and daughters deserve the same constitutional protections as our fathers and sons that’s why Marques will be a champion for the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment in Virginia.
He will also rigorously pursue criminal justice reform to demolish the school to prison pipeline that cripples the lives of so many of our youth.
As the son of two teachers Marques knows the value of education and the role it plays in laying the foundation for a successful life. He will lead the charge to increase education funding in the Commonwealths K-12, community college and university systems.
