Our Mission

Americans for Prosperity exists to recruit, educate, and mobilize citizens in support of the policies and goals of a free society at the local, state, and federal level, helping every American live their dream – especially the least fortunate.

Our Virginia Chapter

One of 36 state chapters nationwide, Americans for Prosperity–Virginia has over 97,000 citizen leaders and an ever-expanding base of local donors. Together, we work hard to keep taxes low and increase opportunity for everyone. Our year-round efforts entail meeting Virginians in their neighborhood, listening to their concerns, educating them on the issues, and empowering them to hold their lawmakers accountable.

The grassroots leaders of AFP Virginia advocate for limited government public policies that enable more people to work hard, provide for their family, and achieve the American dream.

The Point of Contact for Virginia is State Director, J.C. Hernandez.
