We started 2017 with a focus on unlocking the language of government (policies, regulations, and budgets) to serve others in advocating for change. This directive, led us to set an ambitious list of goals. Read our 2017 recap to see where our journey took us!
Good budgets and policies will only be as sustainable and accountable as we, the public, make it. That’s why it is imperative that we build a collective impact network in Richmond.
If you are interested in being a part of the Thriving Richmond organizing team (STAY RVA, Support Our Schools, Building a Better RPS, and Richmond Council of PTAs) that will help determine next steps, show up to Urban Farmhouse Scott’s Addition on Wednesday (November 8th) at 4:30pm. Contact Rupa Murthy at email or (804) 683-3796 with any questions.
We know that schools alone cannot achieve the future of a world-class education system in Richmond, as challenges in transportation, housing, the economy, poverty, racism, immigration policy, criminal justice, the environment, physical and mental health, all directly impact the classroom.
It’s time we gathered to deconstruct the professional and class divides within or community. The divide of RVA and Richmond.
