Mission

 

Our mission is to equip neighbors in marginalized communities to realize their vision for their neighborhoods, and prepare institutions to respond effectively.

 
 

OUR PROGRAMS

Virginia Community Voice has two programs.

 
 

RVA Thrives

RVA Thrives increases neighborhood leadership over decisions affecting Richmond’s Jefferson Davis Corridor community. Since 2016, RVA Thrives has listened to understand what neighbors along the corridor want to see happen in their community.
