Irene Shin

Virginia House, District 86, VA

Irene is an organizer-turned non-profit executive director running for Virginia’s House of Delegates in the 86th District. She is the proud daughter of Korean immigrants; her dad is a small business owner and her mom is a homemaker.

Irene went to a state university on scholarship and paid her way by waiting on tables. She watched a cancer diagnosis almost bankrupt her family. She’s worked for political campaigns, non-profits, and start-ups. Throughout her career, she is always focused on making democracy more accessible and government more representative of everyone.

Irene is running because she knows it shouldn’t make a difference how much money you make, how you pray, which languages you speak, or who you love. Government exists to serve us, the people. And she plans on making it work better for all Virginia families.

As our next Delegate in the 86th district, Irene knows that what matters to you should matter to your government, too.
