Richmond for All
Richmond for All endorsed Sam Rasoul.
Sunrise Virginia endorsement
Sam is a bold and fearless leader who isn’t afraid to stand up to fossil-fuel interests. Since the beginning, he has steadfastly opposed the Mountain Valley and Atlantic Coast Pipelines and continues to support the ongoing fight against MVP. After being inspired by Sunrise Movement’s national Green New Deal, he co-founded the statewide coalition Green New Deal Virginia. For the past two years, he has introduced the Green New Deal Act in the General Assembly, a bill that would of committed Virginia to a just transition to a 100% clean renewable energy grid by 2035 and put a stop to new fossil-fuel projects in the state. As a Palestinian Muslim raised in Southwest Virginia, he understands the value of building bridges and creating broad intersectional coalitions to advance his progressive vision and plans to visit every county and city in Virginia during his campaign. Sunrise Virginia believes Sam’s leadership will help bring in more support for a Virginia Green New Deal and usher in a progressive era for our state.
