VA Government onAir

The VA Government onAir hub is managed by students supporting Virginians to become more informed about and engaged in local, state, and federal politics while facilitating more civil and positive discussions with their representatives, candidates, and fellow citizens.

  • VA onAir is one of 50 state governance and elections hubs that the US onAir Network is providing to help reinvigorate US democracy.  This post has short summaries of current state and federal representatives with links to their complete Hub posts.  Students curate post content from government, campaign, social media, and public websites.  Key content on this Virginia Hub is also replicated on the US onAir national hub at: usgov.onair.cc.
  • The Students onAir @GMU chapter is the founding chapter for the US onAir network. Virginia students will be forming onAir chapters in their colleges and universities to help curate Virginia onAir content.  As more students participate and more onAir chapters are started, we will expand to include more state and local content as well as increase the number of aircasts – student-led, livestreamed, online discussions with candidates, representatives, and the public.
  • To start an onAir chapter at your university, college, or high school, email usdemocracy@onair.cc

Democracy onAir

Democracy onAir is a nonpartisan, nonprofit where students bring together information, organizations, citizens, and their representatives to find common ground on key issues and deliver better solutions to support democracies.

Democracy onAir was chartered in Virginia in 2019 and received its  501c3 certification a year later. Over the past four years, George Mason University alumni, students, faculty, and staff have been developing the US onAir network of 50 state governance and election hubs and central US onAir Hub. For more information on the US onAir network … see this post.

Students onAir @GMU, Democracy onAir’s first onAir university chapter, is planning to launch the VA Government onAir hub this spring and, this summer, the US onAir network and, next winter,  onAir networks in a number of democracies throughout the world.
