Where We Are


The Virginia Latina Advocacy Network (VA LAN) operates as an extension of NLIRH, serving as the voice and advocacy presence in Virginia. The VA LAN works with activists throughout Virginia to organize our communities around issues-based campaigns that impact our families and our lives.

The VA LAN was established after a Latinas Organizing for Leadership and Advocacy (LOLA) training was held in Virginia in 2012. The VA LAN seeks to increase Latina visibility in the reproductive justice movement, cultivate well-informed leaders and build networks of activists in Virginia that will inform and support our state and national policy agenda and strengthen state and national reproductive justice activism. Implementing various civic engagement and community organizing strategies, the VA LAN is building a large base of Latinas/os who are trained on how to use a reproductive justice lens to organize their communities for change and develop spokespeople to lift up the voices of latinas/os in Virginia on a local, state, and national level.
