Suit Filed Opposes At-Large Voting In Virginia Beach

Virginia Beach Must Respond To At-Large Voting Complaint

Judge Hears Suit To End Beach’s At-Large Voting

Holloway, et al. v. City of Virginia Beach

In 2017 I was a party to experiences that confirmed that Black and brown lives do NOT matter in the city of Virginia Beach. I learned that discrimination, political exclusion, and over-policing were generalized methods of interacting with black and brown citizens. To my horror, I discovered that these tactics were even used on my children as early as kindergarten with complete disregard for their wellbeing. to criminal. I was not able to obtain anyone to represent my children’s needs because all the local politicians declined to help my children. It had been so painful living under an apartheid at-large system that was designed to increase the probability of white supremacy rule while diluting the vote of people of color. I decided I could not live like that any longer and filed a complaint in federal court. This lawsuit will take the chains off every citizen of color and ensure that their vote is equally counted without white supremacy vote suppression tactics encumbering our vote.
