Phil has most recently worked as an attorney, advocating for civil rights and the rights of working people.

Phil grew up in Hampton Roads.

Phil, on the issues:

➔ Healthcare +

"Given that access to quality, affordable health care is a major component of economic security for families, I'll protect Medicaid expansion while working to expand tele-health services and recruit more doctors in underserved areas"

➔ Education +

"I'll work to justly compensate our teachers and ensure they have the support they need to succeed in the classroom. I'll also work to ease the burden of student loans and protect borrowers from abusive lending practices."

➔ Human Rights +

Phil worked as an attorney with a nonprofit organization and advocated for civil rights and the rights of working people.

"I'll support the Equal Rights Amendment and policies that build a more inclusive future, including in the areas of housing, employment, and voting rights."

➔ VA Workers & Economy +

"I'll fight for policies that lift up working class people and make investments in an economy of the future, from broadband to apprenticeship programs that offer pathways into good-paying careers."

➔ Energy +

"I'll champion policies that reduce harmful pollution in our air and water, improve coastal resilience, and create new jobs and industries in clean energy technology. Virginia, just like the U.S. Military, should have ambitious renewable energy and energy efficiency goals."
