UPCOMING EVENTS

 

2023 Virginia General Assembly Candidate Forums

Across Virginia, we are preparing for the 2023 General Election where all 140 seats of the VA General Assembly are up for election. Along with local chapters of The Arc, we will host 22 Candidate Forums in September and October to educate and inform our community about the candidates who will be in positions to make key funding and policy decisions that will impact our community for the coming years. Learn about the Candidates' plans and vision for Virginia and hear their positions on the issues that impact people with developmental disabilities most.

Election Day is Tuesday, November 7th.

YOUR VOTE is important in making sure that elected officials are ones that prioritize issues impacting people with developmental disabilities and their families. 

Due to capacity, we could not host a Forum in every area. In the districts where they are being held, all candidates were invited and as long as a few could attend, we will hold them. The Arc of Virginia and its chapters are nonpartisan, 501(c)3 organizations and do not endorse any party or candidates.
