"Young leaders like Blakely are breaking down barriers and fighting for a seat at the table at a time when they're too often told to wait their turn. I launched The Impact Center to uplift candidates who face the most barriers when running for office. Blakely's passion for helping people get the health care and dignity they deserve is why she has my full endorsement. I look forward to seeing her sworn in as Virginia's first Gen Z Delegate."
