How We Will Advocate the RVA Burial Grounds

In a letter we intend to send to Richmond City Council and the Mayor will request the following: That the City Council appoint an ad hoc committee of at least three councilpersons to work with our committee on specific solutions.

We also think it would be fruitful for the Council to have a face-to-face meeting with a committee of 1619, Inc. members so that other questions or concerns can be discussed.

In addition to interfacing with the Richmond City Council, our advocacy will take the issue directly to the people and request that they also mobilize political and community assets to create the necessary atmosphere to promote change including better maintenance and appearance of RVA Burial Grounds.
