Woodbridge, Va.—Virginia Organizing released the following statement from Bruce Smith, a member of Virginia Organizing’s statewide Social Security Strategy Committee:
“Today, Virginia Organizing celebrates with the rest of the U.S. the protections and benefits of Social Security that hard working Americans have enjoyed for 80 years. Without Social Security, retirement would be completely insecure for so many people, people with disabilities would be left out of our system, and children who lose a parent would experience greater financial hardships. Social Security makes a tremendous difference in the lives of so many Americans and we must work to protect and strengthen this vital program. Virginia Organizing asks that U.S. Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine commit to making Social Security stronger without reducing any benefits for the millions of people who rely on this successful program.”
