Alexandria Protests Against White Supremacists

February 13, 2017Blog Post

The President's executive order and subsequent actions have left many feeling terrified, and many of you have called and messaged me with your concerns, which I share.  With reports of ICE raids on non-criminal immigrants, and with anti-Muslim rhetoric at the top of the Trump administration's agenda, now more than ever is the time for steadfast advocacy of human rights.  When we stand for justice in the face of cruelty, we continue in the footsteps of those who were a light in the darkest moments of American history.

Grant to Improve Services for Victims of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault

November 21, 2016Blog Post

I'm proud to announce a grant from Virginia's Department of Criminal Justice Services to add 4 full-time and 2 part-time Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners at Inova Hospital. This will allow them to provide round-the-clock staffing and services for survivors of intimate partner violence and sexual assault in Northern Virginia. Along with many of my colleagues from around the region, I asked for this grant because so many victims had endured long waits or even diversions to hospitals in other regions. Sexual assaults do not come in regular patterns.
