Dr. Dawn M. Adams holds a life-long passion for helping people achieve what each of us most desire from life: secure and healthy lives for ourselves and our families. Over her years as a resident of District 68 and as a nurse in Virginia’s healthcare system, Dawn has witnessed first-hand the struggles and heartbreak caused by poverty, inadequate living conditions, and limited healthcare access and coverage. As your Delegate, Dawn will work tirelessly to ensure that members of this community and that all Virginians achieve these basic and important goals.
The American dream is built on helping the next generation do better – access to quality education leads to stronger job opportunities. Dawn worked to achieve that dream with the help of her family, hard work and the Virginia public school and university system. Dawn wants to ensure that the opportunity to succeed is available to every Virginian and this can only be made possible with fully funded public schools, trade schools and universities. Students who graduate with crippling student debt cannot buy homes or pursue their dreams of opening a new business. Teacher pay in Virginia lags behind the national average, preventing our schools from recruiting the best teachers. Our schools are overcrowded, underfunded and working with outdated technology. Our students and communities deserve better, and our future requires better.
Dawn will work to fund schools, pay teachers fairly, and reduce the debt of students attending Virginias public universities and trade schools.
