BWFO4Change Endorses Charniele Herring

We are proud to endorse Virginia Delegate Charniele Herring who is serving her first term as the representative of the 46th District, West Alexandria, Virginia. Charniele is a BWFO4Change Networker and campaigned as part of BWFO for President Barack Obama during the presidential election. She is an advocate for rental assistance for Virginia’s neediest families, small businesses, and the environment and serves on the Courts of Justice Committee and the Militia, Police, and Public Safety Committee.

Charniele was elected in a Special Election in January 2009 and is now running for a full term. She fills the seat vacated by Brian Moran--BWFO4Change candidate for Governor of Virginia. She is very active in issues affecting the homeless and children, an issue that touches her personally after experiencing homelessness as a child. As a participant with Social Action Linking Together (S.A.L.T.) she received the Monsignor Geno Baroni Award for Social Justice for her work to get full funding for the Homeless Intervention Act. She founded and co-chaired the Virginia Privileged Communication Task Force which was comprised of counselors and advocates around the state and worked with a bi-partisan delegation to get a bill sponsored to protect communications between victims and advocates.

Delegate Herring has a B.A. in Economics from George Mason University and a J.D. from the Catholic University Columbus School of Law. We hope you will support her -- send us notes and photos from your volunteer work or financial contributions.

Yes We Can!
