Richmond, VA - New Virginia Majority congratulates Ramin Fatehi on his victory tonight in the Democratic primary for Norfolk Commonwealth’s Attorney. We have seen how Commonwealth's Attorneys serve a crucial role in reducing Virginia's dependence on incarceration and minimizing racial disparities in the criminal legal system. Ramin Fatehi is best positioned to serve justice, improve transparency, and make our community safer as a Commonwealth’s Attorney.
“NVM’s strategy is field first - and that is how we win legislative victories and elections. We talk with voters one by one at their doors and on the phone, inviting them into a process that has often neglected them. This is how we transform and grow our electorate into one that is truly representative of the diverse communities who call Virginia home,” said Maya Castillo, political director for NVM.
We are looking forward to supporting him in November. If elected, we are confident that he will continue to enact and expand upon the reforms that Virginians expect from their elected officials.
New Virginia Majority builds power in working-class communities of color, in immigrant communities, among LGBTQ people, women, youth, and progressives across the Commonwealth. We organize for racial and economic justice through large-scale political education, mobilization and advocacy around dozens of issues. We fight for a Virginia that is just, democratic and environmentally sustainable. For more information, visit our website and follow us on Twitter and Facebook at @NewVAMajority.
