Defense with Dignity



We strive to give the best and most zealous representation of poor and working folks battling an unjust system.


We seek fair wages and manageable caseloads so we can enjoy time with our families and friends. 


We aim to spread awareness about the law and to mobilize the public against the the criminal (in)justice system. 


Who can Join? 

The PWID Union is open to all rank-and-file workers of the Virginia Indigent Defense Commission. That means if you are not a supervisor, you may join. 


Per the IWW's Constitution, Legal assistants, paralegals, investigators, APD 1s and 2s, and Senior Trial Attorneys with no supervisory status are eligible. 

We are organizing throughout the entire Commonwealth, so we encourage you to join!


Oppression Exists. 
We fight it. 

The IWW strongly opposes racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and any expression of disrespect and/or intolerance of size, gender identity, sexual identity/expression, (dis)ability, age, educational level, and cultural background.


Not From Fredericksburg? 

No problem. We are organizing VIDC offices throughout the Commonwealth. We have the support of multiple IWW branches and collaborate with every interested office. If you want to unionize your workplace, you have our support!
