Virginia Black Caucus of Local Elected Officials

As the Virginia Black Chamber of Commerce, our primary aim is to advocate for and strengthen various sectors such as business, economic development, workforce, education, and more to ensure the priorities of Black Business owners' economic prosperity are represented statewide.


The Virginia Black Caucus of Local Elected Officials (VABC-LEO) is a nonpartisan initiative that brings together the political leaders of Virginia and black business owners. We believe in the power of collaboration and unity. That's why VABC-LEO provides a platform for elected officials to convene regularly, enabling them to discuss and implement ideas to enhance their respective communities. We actively promote harmony and cooperation among all our members and stakeholders.


Looking ahead, we envision VABC-LEO evolving into an educational institute designed to further empower our political leaders. We aim to foster more efficient and responsible local government administration within Virginia's communities by disseminating, communicating, and exchanging ideas and information among members.
