Richmond has a long and troubled history of segregation, discrimination, and racism that still permeates its neighborhoods, schools, housing, and the well-being of its residents.

Richmond [Re]Visited explores Richmond’s history and provides context for issues affecting today’s current social workers and community members. Since 2014, we have focused on various topics each year including housing, the school to prison pipeline, mental health, and more. This year we are focusing on racism as a public health issue. 

Join the VCU School of Social Work Black Lives Matter Student-Alumni-Faculty Collective for a day of  reflection, discussion, community connections, and action planning. The event includes: breakfast and lunch, and a community bus tour.

Whether you are new to Richmond or have lived here your whole life, the event will expose you to new perspectives and opportunities for discussion with other students, alumni,  and faculty. No prior knowledge or experience is required. Come be a part of the dialogue!
