Learn about the pro-housing movement and how you can make housing more affordable near you!
We are residents of the Greater Richmond region. We live in the the city and the counties. We’re a mix of long-time residents and newcomers, renters and homeowners, business owners and employees, families and individuals, citizens and immigrants, commuters, bus riders, cyclists, and pedestrians.
We see friends, family, and coworkers priced out of our area. We see sprawl consume acres of wilderness and increase the number of cars on the road. And we see an alternative. We want RVA to be an affordable and inclusive community, where housing is abundant and accessible. We can make RVA a place with homes for all.Join RVA YIMBY at the Scott's Addition Pumpkin Festival!
