The greater Richmond region and communities across the nation are confronting two crises – the novel coronavirus, which continues to disproportionately impact people of color, and racism, which has afflicted our country for generations. People are hurting. We feel it.
We are grieving the senseless loss of George Floyd in Minneapolis and others who came before him.
