Our Core Beliefs
One Richmond: A better Richmond is possible only when we work together to unify the different communities that make up our diverse city. If you feel the same, join the RPA and sign up for one of our Activist Teams.
Democracy is about people, not corporations: Corporations have too much power in our society. In all our activities and campaigns, we refuse contributions from corporate donors. Instead, we try to counteract corporate power with the voluntary activity of large numbers of people. Democracy is about people, not corporations, making the important decisions.
Diversity and Respect: We are registered as Democrats, Greens, Independents, and more. We don’t all agree on every issue. But we do agree on the need to build a strong progressive movement in Richmond, one where people support each other.
