This webinar, recorded September 25, 2020, is a conversation between two Virginia public servants: Senator Jennifer McClellan, a Democrat who is running for Governor in 2021, and Senator Jen A. Kiggans, a first-term Republican representing parts of Norfolk and Virginia Beach. They talk about how they forged their ideals, why they believe in politics as a strategy for change, how they understand women’s issues, and their dreams for a more equitable collective future. The conversation is moderated by Sarah McConnell, host and executive producer of our weekly radio show, With Good Reason.   

This is the second event in a short series of virtual conversations titled “To Dwell in Possibility: Virginia Women Remaking the World.” Thanks to the financial support of educator Dr. Melanie J. Biermann, the series will honor the legacy of Rosel Schewel, a political and civil rights activist from Lynchburg who was the longest-serving member of the board of Virginia Humanities.  

Our work brings people together and honors our shared humanity.
