ISSUES

JENNIFER’S VISION FOR VIRGINIA’S FUTURE

Jennifer McClellan has been longtime community leader in Virginia, including more than 14 years of service in the legislature, driving change and leading the fight for a more equitable and progressive Commonwealth.

STRENGTHENING OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS

As the daughter, granddaughter, and great granddaughter of educators, Jenn understands that a high quality public education for all children is the cornerstone of a thriving economy and democracy

REVITALIZING THE ECONOMY FOR EVERY VIRGINIA COMMUNITY

Jennifer McClellan is running for Governor to build a strong, inclusive, and resilient economy that gives everyone an opportunity for prosperity while meeting the changing demands of technology and the marketplace.

CREATING AN INCLUSIVE VIRGINIA

Jennifer McClellan believes that all Virginians should be treated with respect and dignity. No one should be discriminated against because of who they are, who they love, or what they believe.

EXPANDING HEALTH CARE ACCESS

Jennifer McClellan believes that all Virginians deserve access to affordable, quality health care. However, too many are paying too much for health care or do not have access at all. The coronavirus crisis has further exposed disparities in our health care systems and strains on our health care safety net.

PUBLIC SAFETY AND CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM

Virginia and the nation must reform a criminal justice system that too often disproportionately impacts communities of color, focuses more on punishment and incarceration than prevention and rehabilitation, and doles out punishments that are disproportionate to crimes.

CLIMATE CHANGE AND ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE

We are at a critical point in the fight against climate change and addressing environmental justice. We must transition from fossil fuels and pollutants that harm the planet while championing industries in a way that does not leave workers behind.

REDUCING GUN VIOLENCE

Virginians are heartbroken and tired of the gun violence in our communities. As a legislator, Jennifer McClellan has taken on the NRA and fought for common sense measures to reduce gun violence.
