    Virginia Community Voice is a nonprofit organization that equips neighbors in marginalized communities to realize their vision for their neighborhoods and prepares institutions to respond effectively.

    VACV has two programs:

    1) RVA Thrives, a community engagement initiative that increases neighborhood leadership over decisions affecting Richmond’s Jefferson Davis Corridor community; and,

    2) Community Voice Blueprint, a toolkit, training and coaching on our model of equitable decision-making and community engagement

    Most organizations — from nonprofits to business — are trying to solve a problem. By listening to and engaging the people most affected by the problem, we believe organizations will find solutions to those problems more quickly.

    Virginia Community Voice offers organizational leaders a simple framework for how to equitably make decisions, and engage people directly impacted by community programs, investments, and policy-making.

    We also invite you to join us for a free introductory training this fall on Equitable Decision-Making and Community Engagement.

    In these two-hour introductory trainings, participants will:

    • Learn about the four stages of the Community Voice model of engagement: Listen, Connect, Craft, and Reflect
    • Reflect on their own experiences making decisions about and engaging people in historically marginalized communities
    • Consider the difference between intent vs. impact in their volunteerism, research, investments, or programming
    • Learn strategies for maximizing impact and minimizing harm in decision-making and community engagement
