The City of Richmond is celebrating National Bring Your Dog To Work Day in a big way, hosting shelter dogs from Richmond Animal Care and Control Friday afternoon in an effort to find them forever homes.
The commission includes well-respected community and city leaders from a wide variety of perspectives and viewpoints, who will solicit public feedback and make official recommendations on how to add context to, rather than outright remove, the city’s Confederate statues.
Richmond favorites Future Prospect will kick the evening off, followed by New Orleans quintet Galactic, who seamlessly blend rock, jazz, hip-hop, and soul for a night of great music that will keep you on your feet.
CARITAS, a nonprofit that strives to end homelessness, plans to start a long-term recovery program for women in Richmond after the success of its program for men, The Healing Place. The women’s facility is tentatively scheduled to open in late 2017 or early 2018.
