Liberate Virginians!

Princess Blanding believes our two-party system is incapable of putting people over profit and politics. She is running for Governor just two-and-a-half years after her brother was murdered by Richmond Police while unarmed, undressed and experiencing a mental health crisis. As a single LGBTQIA+ mother, veteran educator and grassroots activist, Princess has fought to elevate the voices and concerns of every day, working-class Virginians. She understands the plight of marginalized communities and as Governor she will be a fearless advocate for prioritizing the needs of everyday people.
