We believe that the slogan "Virginia is for Lovers" is a very outdated slogan. The slogan has been in use since 1969, and most people from Virginia don't think it applies to our state anymore since interracial marriage is now common place in the world. Virginia is more than just a state for Lovers, Virginia is where America was born & raised. We feel our state slogan should represent all Virginian's. We want people to come to Virginia and see how our state has shaped this great country since 1607. We want to reintroduce ourselves to the world in a way that they will never forget our place in US History. In order to do this, we believe that we have to change our states slogan. We want it to be something that represents our state, that represents us. So we feel the best slogan that would represent our state is  

"Virginia is the Birthplace of America." 

In 1607 Jamestown, Virginia became the first permanent English settlement in what we now call the United States of America.

In 2007, Virginia celebrated America's 400th anniversary.

We want to embrace our place in history by promoting our state as the place where it all began. By changing our state slogan, we will bring a new pride to our state like no other. Promoting ourselves as "The Birthplace of America" Virginia will finally get the respect that we most richly deserve.

By changing the Virginia State slogan, We will bring a new awareness to our state and US History in a whole. This change will increase tourism and bring more economic development to our state as people rediscover Virginia all over again. 

Please sign this petition to change the Virginia State slogan to "Virginia is the Birthplace of America." By singing this, you agree that Virginia should immediately change our state slogan, so the world may know who we truly are and our historical place in US History as "The Birthplace of America".
