Shelter in Place until June 10: Governor Northam announcement today extends the "stay at home" mandate through the spring.
Wash your hands. Don't touch your face. Carry sanitizer. Stay home or away from group events. Check on family, friends or neighbors who live alone. Stock up on food and necessities, but not at the expense of your neighbors. (The only reason there is a TP shortage is because people have bought far more than they need now)
Check the CDC website for national updates on the pandemic. The Virginia Department of Health site includes the Richmond Department of Health updates.

Invitation to Attend!
BUT WHAT DO WE WANT INSTEAD?
to develop an alternative proposal for Shockoe Bottom
<= <= <= See the schedule of meetings to the left.
In the three decades before the Civil War, up to 350,000 people were sold out of Virginia to the plantations of the Deep South. Richmond's Shockoe Bottom was the center of this trade. In fact, it was the hub of the U.S. domestic slave trade. It's sacred ground that should be properly memorialized, not used for playing sports.
Join with your neighbors for a discussion on what we would really like to see in Shockoe Bottom: A Memorial Park? Museum? Interpretive Center? Historical District?
