Virginia Kase Solomon

President and CEO of Common Cause

Virginia Kase is the CEO of the League of Women Voters of the United States where she leads the organization through a period of transformation and growth focused on building power by engaging in advocacy, legislation, litigation, and efforts centered around issues of voting rights and democracy reform.


Prior to joining the League in 2018, she served as COO of CASA, an organization at the forefront of the immigrant rights movement. In that leadership role, Virginia managed the growth, direction, and operations of the organization and served as a key thought leader on its politics and policy team. 


Earlier in her career, Virginia spent eight years serving as the National Technical Assistance and Training Manager at the Center for Neighborhood Enterprise (CNE) in Washington, DC. While at CNE she developed a grant-making and capacity-building program for grassroots non-profits addressing issues of urban violence, and economic, racial, and social inequality. During that time, she also studied what made them effective, using that information to assist groups in deepening their impact by replicating best practices and identifying opportunities for cross-sector movement building. Virginia’s career started in her early 20’s when she co-founded a youth-led non-profit in her hometown of Hartford, CT. 


Virginia has more than 20 years of experience working in the non-profit sector and is a passionate activist and advocate for social justice. She graduated from the University of Maryland with a Bachelor’s degree in Communications.
