Tending to Democracy

Dear Fellow Tenders:

Another successful year for Tending To Democracy.

Virginia was the focus of our contributions in 2023. It was critical to neutralize Governor Glenn Youngkin and his right-wing agenda.  

TTD’s early contribution, made in December 2022, helped flip a key Senate seat, giving a strong candidate time to build name recognition and reach voters early, which made the district safer in the general election.

On the life-affirming topic of reproductive health care, for one example, the governing power that Giving Circles helped build will serve as a critical firewall for millions of patients across the South, as Virginia is the only southern state without a post-Dobbs abortion ban.

Virginia’s new majorities are already leveraging their governing power to give voters the opportunity to secure protections in their state constitution. Just two weeks after Election Day, they filed two resolutions to (1) amend the state constitution to let voters decide to protect abortion access to ensure every Virginian has the freedom to make their own healthcare decisions and (2) strengthen democracy by safeguarding the right to vote for people with felony convictions after they have served their sentences.

When we work to shift power in a state chamber, we’re not just shifting the party majority— we’re changing who is at the decision table too. We know state lawmakers who are representative of the diversity of their state make decisions with more of the people in mind.

That’s real change.

We appreciate all of you who shared our passion for change and our Giving Circle. When we pull in the same direction, we effect the change we want to see!

Thank you, and please invite others to donate!
