COVID-19 Pandemic

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.

Richmond Free Press covers the March for Accountability

"The war of words over Confederate statues in Richmond appears to be just getting started. In the weeks and months ahead, Richmond City Council is poised to consider a nonbinding resolution from 9th District Councilman Michael J. Jones that aims to put the governing body on record as favoring removal."


It will begin at 6 pm at the Robert E. Lee statue on Monument Avenue and head to the Devil’s Half Acre in Shockoe Bottom, where community leaders will address the current issues facing our people today:

Take Down the Confederate Statues + Build the Shockoe Bottom Memorial Park! Fix the Schools! Expand Public Transit! Hands Off Public Housing! Fight for $15! Hands Off Immigrants! LGBTQ Rights! No Pipelines! 

Sponsored by the newly formed COALITION FOR ACCOUNTABILITY, we multiply our individual strengths by supporting each other in our various struggles and call for ACTION and ACCOUNTABILITY from our city leaders! 

Join us on Tuesday, Oct. 10, 2017 from 6:00 to 8:30 pm.
(wear comfortable, walking shoes)
