The Virginia AFL-CIO supports stronger worker's compensation laws; increased fines for workplace safety violations; civil rights and equal rights; and legislation requiring local governments to offer health care to retirees.

“The Virginia AFL-CIO is a leading advocate for workers’ rights and social justice throughout Virginia and I am honored to have received their endorsement” said Lopez. “I look forward to working with them in Richmond to support the working families of Virginia.”
