Brenda Tillett
Brenda TillettPresident
In the summer of 2020, Brenda Tillett began an effort to stand up for public safety in Virginia. What began as one request from a law enforcement officer for her to give a public comment before the Board of Supervisors grew into an entire movement of residents standing up and speaking out for safe homes, communities, and schools.

Since then, Tillett and others united their supporters to form Stand Up Virginia, a non-profit mainstream organization welcoming individuals from all political perspectives to come together to stand for similar values. As President, Tillett continues to inform Virginians about issues affecting our public safety, children’s education, and vote and details ways to get activated and impact change in their own communities. Her hope, faith, and belief in good prevailing in the end continues to inspire her efforts to lead the way toward a brighter future for Virginians.

In 1981, President Ronald Reagan appointed Bay Buchanan, then 32, to be Treasurer of the United States. She became the youngest person to ever hold the position.

In the following forty years, Buchanan remained at the forefront of American politics. Working on seven presidential campaigns and chairing four of them, hosting her own national radio and television shows, and authoring two books, her contribution to the current political landscape is undeniable.
