The Feminist Majority is deeply disturbed by the sexual assault allegations that have been made against Virginia Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax. We stand with Vanessa, Meredith, and all survivors on their journey for safety and justice.

Virginians, including the hundreds of thousands of sexual violence survivors who live in the Commonwealth, deserve leaders who inspire trust and show respect to the brave survivors who come forward to share their truths.

In order to restore the confidence of the constituency and show survivors of sexual violence that their voices and experiences matter, it is time for Justin Fairfax to step down from his position as Lieutenant Governor.
