Over the past few years, Virginia HOPE has been advocating for awareness across the state and on television. We took our advocacy efforts to the nation’s capital in March meeting with lawmakers and legislative aides about our awareness efforts. In March of 2015, Governor Terry McAuliffe declared March as Endometriosis Awareness Month in the state of Virginia. This was a first for endometriosis awareness in Virginia and a huge accomplishment for women with endometriosis. Governor McAuliffe also declared March Endometriosis Awareness Month in 2016.
Mayor Dwight C. Jones declared March as Endometriosis Awareness Month in the City of Richmond.
