Danielle Walker wasted no time as a freshman delegate in 2019, and she has worked tirelessly on behalf of West Virginia’s most vulnerable and hardworking people ever since. In both the 2019 and 2020 legislative sessions, Delegate Walker fought hard for public education and state employees, joining them on the picket lines again and again as they fought for their rights and our children’s best interests. In 2020, she took on foster care reform, playing a crucial role in establishing a foster child and foster parents’ bill of rights.
Danielle has worked hard to help her constituents (and others!) navigate their way through the Covid-19 pandemic, including securing free testing locations in multiple counties, and simply being there to help anyone in need find resources and support. Danielle takes public service seriously and is known for her accessibility and commitment to helping others, no matter who they are or who they know.
Delegate Walker has lived up to her promise to serve as a voice for the voiceless, co-sponsoring several pieces of legislation aimed at protecting the rights of all West Virginians. From fighting against attacks on reproductive rights, to expanding felony hate crime protections to include sexual orientation and extending anti-discrimination laws to include hair texture or style (CROWN Act), Danielle has never wavered in her dedication to West Virginia and its people.
Perhaps Delegate Walker’s greatest achievement has been her ability to change the face of politics by example. After a life spent in service to her family, she recognized a calling to serve her state and its people. Through her actions, she shows ordinary working people that they too can have a voice and a seat at the table.
