The Richmond Chapter is working to organize those most in need of effective public transit in the Richmond area. While we are happy and excited about the prospects for Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) in Richmond, we believe that the people who most need transit, the working poor, the elderly, the mobility challenged, most have an effective and powerful voice in transit policy.
The Richmond Chapter is also active in promoting the Affordable Care Act, securing affordable housing for everyone and making sure that the traditionally voiceless are heard in debates about the future of the Richmond Metro Area. The Chapter is working to build stronger strategic alliances with other progressive groups in the region, knowing that we are all stronger when each of us is stronger. The Chapter meets on the third Thursdays of alternate months, in or near downtown.
