April 6, 2021, Virginia – CASA in Action endorsed Mark Herring for Attorney General. Herring has been committed to solving problems in our communities by championing cash bail reform and police accountability as well as expanding criminal record expungement and reentry programs. Running for reelection as attorney general, the Loudoun County native also has been an advocate for LGBTQ people, DACAmented youth, and more.
“Since becoming Attorney General in 2014, Mark Herring has always advocated for the safety, security, and prosperity of Virginia’s immigrant communities,” said Alonzo Washington, CASA in Action’s executive director. “He fought for college affordability for DACA recipients, advocated for protections for TPS holders, and continues to be a champion for healthcare accessibility in the commonwealth. In order to continue building an environment that allows all Virginians to be successful, we need Mark Herring in the Office of the Attorney General.”
CASA in Action mobilized 1.2 million low-propensity voters in Virginia and Pennsylvania for the 2020 elections, which helped elect the Biden-Harris ticket. In addition, CASA in Action closed a powerful field game for the two open Senate seats in Georgia which gave Democrats a majority in that governing body.
