WOODBRIDGE- Hala Ayala, candidate for the 51st District of the House of Delegates, has earned the endorsements of women’s advocacy groups throughout Virginia and beyond, as well as a number of state and local elected officials, including state Sen. Jennifer Wexton and former state Sen. Emilie Miller.
“I am honored to have the support of so many champions of Virginia women and working families,” said Hala Ayala. “These elected officials and groups have been instrumental in the effort to fight for positive change and gender equality. I look forward to continuing our work together in Richmond.”
Out of 100 members of the House of Delegates, only 17 are women.
“Hala is a doer and a fighter, and I’m proud to support her,” said state Sen. Jennifer Wexton. “I got to know her in Richmond and around Northern Virginia during her time as vice president of the Virginia chapter of the National Organization for Women. We need her passion for progress across the Commonwealth, especially when it comes to key issues like Medicaid Expansion, equal pay for equal work and providing a living wage for working families.”
Because of her past work in pro-choice advocacy, Ayala has earned the endorsements of national political groups, EMILY’s List and Feminist Majority PAC, as well as active state-based chapters, NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia and National Organization Women – Virginia.
“Hala is a community activist who has worked hard to help Prince William,” said Former State Sen. Emilie Miller. “Hala is committed to the rights of all citizens to live and work in the county. Instead of watching from the sidelines, Hala wants to fight for her friends and neighbors in the General Assembly. I am honored to support her and strongly urge everyone in the 51st House District to do the same.”
