Concerned Women for America of Virginia
Wishes you a Merry Christmas!


As Christmas Day approaches, we reflect on what the Lord has done in and through us this year. We stand amazed at the reality of Jesus’ presence with us as we visited legislators, participated in multiple pro-life events, encouraged legislators with daily prayer and weekly hand-written notes, grew our prayer/action footprint throughout the state, and so much more. Our Lord has been with us in our times of rejoicing and success and in our times of discouragement and defeat.


We are grateful to God for your involvement in the ministry of Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Virginia. Whether you are a participating member or in a leadership role, your engagement in your community and in the Commonwealth has made a significant difference for good.


We are looking ahead to 2023 and all that lies ahead with great anticipation. We believe that with concerted prayer, seeking the Lord’s wisdom in all that we do, extending both truth and grace in all that we do, that new doors of opportunity will be opened, the Lord will be glorified, and His perfect will, will be done.


We are so thankful for each of you and your partnership with CWA of Virginia. We have seen Jesus’ presence in the rich relationships that He has blessed us with over this past year. Your prayers and financial support allow us to stand at the ready, come what may.


CWA of Virginia’s team is ready to engage in a post-Roe America! We are poised, positioned, and prepared to execute CWA’s post-Roe America ground game. Thru intentional prayer, education, and action, we will bring back a culture of life in our state!


Thank you for standing with us in 2023!

Public Comment Period Open for Virginia Schools 2022 Model Policies

By | Virginia | No Comments

Gov. Glen Younkin (Republican) released the new 2022 Model Policies on the Privacy, Dignity, and Respect for All Students and Parents in Virginia’s Public Schools.


The model policies uphold parents’ basic rights to oversee their child’s education and well-being. This policy strikes down former Gov. Ralph Northam’s administration policy, which held a radical gender ideology that endangered students’ privacy and safety, infringed on free speech, and created a rift between parents and their children. 


The redrawn draft of Gov. Youngkin’s 2022 Model Policies offers a significant breakthrough. The policies:

  • Exclude all gender terms and clarifies that “sex” refers simply to biological sex;
  • Provide statutory and legal references that back policies safeguarding protections for parental rights and students’ privacy and safety rights;
  • Restrain schools from encouraging or instructing school workforce from keeping from their parent or legal guardian, gender-related information about a student;
  • Declare student participation in athletics must correspond with their biological sex.

There is a public comment period for the citizens of Virginia to weigh in on the 2022 model policies. The deadline to submit comments is Wednesday, October 26, 2022. This revised model policy is only a draft and does not have a final approval. Your comments are vitally important to ensure passage.

Join us in prayer: Father God, we thank you for Gov. Youngkin’s actions to restore parental rights to oversee their children’s education and well-being while reversing dangerous radical gender ideology in Virginia’s schools.  Jesus said, “It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were cast into the sea than that he should cause one of these little ones to sin.” Luke 17:2. Protect the minds and hearts of our school children.


Thank you!
