What You Need To Make Calls

To Begin, Get to Know our Candidates:

Knowing a bit about the candidates and/or having their website and dossier easily accessible will make your life easier as you make calls and voters have questions! We suggest choosing a couple of key issues to learn about and highlight.

Schuyler VanValkenburg is a father, teacher, and current VA Delegate. As a History and US Government teacher at Glen Allen High. He has served in the House of Delegates for 6 years. Schuyler has worked tirelessly to ensure that Virginia remains a leader in public education. He also is proud of his work to pass commonsense gun safety legislation, protect a woman's reproductive freedom, expand access to affordable, high-quality healthcare, and increase access to the ballot box.



The newly formed VA Senate disstrict 16 is situated in the Richmond suburbs, encompassing much of Henrico County, including the towns of Glen Allen, Tuckahoe, Short Pump, and parts of Lakeside. The district is historically quite competitive and has newly established boundaries  


Siobhan Dunnavant is a physician and current State Senator for Western Henrico who uses her position as a physician to advocate for stricter abortion laws and consistently votes against lowering the cost of prescription drugs.

Key Issues

Why This Race Matters

Electing Schuyler VanValkenburg is an opportunity to maintain a Democratic majority in the Virginia State Senate and prevent Virginia from becoming the next Florida or Tennessee, passing harmful and discriminatory legislation, and prevent his opponent, a champion for restrictive reproductive rights and conservative policy. This district is considered politically competitive and winning will depend on mobilizing votes all the way down the ballot.
