This action only acts to silence the voice of voters in Loudoun County.

Loudoun4All condemns the Governor for meddling in politics. This act only serves to circumvent the democratic process, and is motivated purely by his desire to overturn an election that his far right allies in Loudoun could not win.
Fair and free elections are a hallmark of our Democracy. As the Governor should know, elections have consequences, and Mr. Youngkin cannot end the term of Loudoun’s elected officials prematurely simply because he does not agree with their policies. This constitutes a complete executive overreach and is a blatant attack on democracy, by someone who was defeated in Loudoun by 11 percentage points.

This is part of an ongoing, multi-year campaign to override free and fair elections. From stalled recall efforts, to sham pre-determined investigations that have yet to turn up any wrongdoing, as well as a fear campaign that threatened and attacked our elected officials, which led to one School Board member’s resignation due to physical threats against that official and her family, Loudoun’s children deserve better than this.

Loudoun4All believes in democracy. Absent a criminal or impeachable offense, elected leaders must be allowed to serve their full term.

An opportunity to earn a bonus might not seem like a big win for some but to our LEA bus attendants this is the first step to feeling respected and valued. Our attendants came to us with an issue, worked with our UniServ Directors, and came up with a plan to advocate for what is right and fair. This is 100% what union organizing is all about. We stand together, support one another, and teach others to use their voice.

Thank you to everyone who made this happen. Thank you to everyone who stood with us. Join us at the school board on Tuesday (5:45), wear red, and keep advocating for Respect.

Not a member-join today.

Our in office LEA Delegates are ready to go!

Photos from Loudoun Education Association's post 04/01/2022

Today is a big day for LEA and VEA. Today kicks off our state-wide convention. Many members aren't exactly sure what convention is or why it's important. Think of it like the General Assembly for VEA. Each local across the Commonwealth sends delegates to convention. State-wide leaders are elected by delegates at convention and it is what directs the vision of VEA.

Member delegates introduce new business items (Like a Senator would introduce a bill.) Those new business items (NBIs) are then debated and voted on. If the NBI passes, it becomes part of the VEA agenda for the next year.

We have had many laws passed that benefit educators and students as a direct result of the work that happens at convention. VEA convention is where the breastfeeding in schools law and the anti-bullying law originated.

Here's a few pic of our office that's ready for our virtual delegates to do some important work!

VEA announced today that its website will now host the educational equity resources that Governor Youngkin's administration has removed from the state's website. Leaders and and clergy from five other organizations joined the press conference to call for honesty in education and to protest the removal of the "EdEquity" initiative materials. The Virginia Interfaith Center for Public Policy, Legal Aid Justice Center, and NAACP were among the participating organizations. You can see the materials at veanea.org/edequity.
