Virginia Community Voice equips neighbors in marginalized communities to realize their vision for their neighborhoods, and prepares institutions to respond effectively. VACV has two programs: RVA Thrives & Community Voice Blueprint RVA Thrives increases neighborhood leadership over decisions affecting Richmond’s Jefferson Davis Corridor community. Using a four stage process we listen to neighbors, connect them to resources, craft equitable solutions, and reflect on our progress. Current Issues » Equitable Solutions: Employment » Job seeker & employer focus groups and surveys Neighborhood safety » Youth program to create traffic calming street art Neighborhood beautification » Annual community-wide clean up days Housing » Gentrification forums & equitable development scorecard Community Voice Blueprint is a guide to our four-stage community engagement process. Using the Blueprint, we train and coach institutions on how to engage marginalized communities equitably. Learn more and get involved: firstname.lastname@example.org.
