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 join one of our Action Team or committee meetings.

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.

Steering Committee Meetings

The RPA Steering Committee meets on the third Thursday of the month at 6:30 pm.  For the time being, all meetings are held online.  If you are an RPA member and would like to attend, send an email to [email protected] to get the login information.
