Amy Pearl
36:35
When you meet the needs of "special needs" constituents, it actually meets the needs of many more.
Kim Aitken-Young
00:41:11
Right!
Such a key difference between most women politicians and men — DON’T CARE ABOUT RECOGNITION, JUST RESULTS
Maureen Blanc

Go Jennifer Carroll Foy - next governor of VA!

Amy Pearl

Hi Kim! Women serve to get things done, not to be someone.
Kim Aitken-Young
51:05
Agree, Amy!
Amy Pearl
51:23
Yes! Every registered voter get a postage paid mail ballot, with drop off locations, and polling place options. WI showed that risking one's life to vote is the ultimate poll tax.
Marti Anderson
52:03
Did you create a women’s caucus? If so, was it open to women from both parties? Open to leadership women and men?
Del. Danica Roem
52:56
There is a caucus that's sort of like that and it is technically bipartisan but when we're dealing with issues of social justice, Democratic women show up.
Maureen Blanc
54:06
Is Ralph Northam termed out?
Del. Danica Roem
54:38
Yes. Virginia is the only state in the nation where the governor can serve one term without running for a consecutive term.
Del. Danica Roem
54:55
However, a governor can run again after sitting out a term.

Northam’s term ends in 2022.
Marti Anderson
01:03:08
Are legislators term limited?
Amy Pearl
01:03:31
Right now, armed extremists are storming the MI state capitol, protesting (violently - *armed*) extension of the public health orders. Jennifer, you said you all have received death threats. What kind of response have you had over any Cov-19 restrictions?
Amy Pearl
01:04:35
Londyn, thank you for that donation link!
Del. Jennifer Carroll Foy
01:07:28
Amy, the death threats came during the assault weapons ban vote. I have not received much opposition to the shelter at home order.
Amy Pearl
01:10:00
JCF, that's awful. How do you personally deal with that? And these crazies in MI are in the state capitol *armed.* Do you have any body armor? What an awful question to even think of asking :-(
Amy Pearl
01:11:10
Yay, Andrea! Great shout out!
Kim Aitken-Young
01:11:32
Yay Andrea!!!
Maureen Blanc
01:12:01
Yay Andrea - what a legacy…
Del. Danica Roem
01:12:03
Love you too, Julie!!
Londyn Marshall

Thank you for your vision Andrea!

I love the Emerge Sisterhood/Persisterhood. So grateful to Andrea Dew Steele for founding Emerge. Delegates Jennifer Carroll Foy and Danica Roem are such a dynamic duo.
Del. Danica Roem
01:17:50
I prefer Coven. :D
Kim Aitken-Young
01:19:08
THANK YOU Andrea Dew Steele for founding Emerge. Delegates Jennifer Carroll Foy and Danica Roem — so inspiring!
Del. Jennifer Carroll Foy
01:19:30
No body armor. I had to walk through thousands of armed 2nd Amendment Sanctuary city advocates to get to session. I couldn’t show that them carrying AR-15s and AK-47s bothered me because if I did, they win
Amy Pearl
01:20:06
JCF, your courage is amazing and inspiring. Thank you for all your service.
Del. Jennifer Carroll Foy
01:20:12
Love you, Julie. Love you so much, Andrea
