Fostering an equitable
and healthy Richmond region.

On Equity and Belonging

In order to achieve equity we must feel a sense of connection - of shared responsibility - for ensuring that all in our community have an opportunity to thrive.

Tomorrow belongs to those of us who conceive of it as belonging to everyone; who lend the best of ourselves to it, and with joy.
Audre Lorde

Health Equity

Everyone has a fair and just opportunity to be as healthy and well as possible.

Racial Equity

When race no longer determines socioeconomic outcomes.
