VICTORY IN RICHMOND! Proposed Monument Resolution FAILS!

Via Billy



City Council resolution to ask General Assembly permission to move the monuments on Monument Avenue FAILS SOUNDLY. 6-2

Councilman Newbille abstained
Yays were Councilmen Jones (sponsor) and Robertson

The fight is far from over.  There is still a commission appointed to "study" the issue,  but this is a HUGE WIN and the result of a lot of hard work and grass roots organizing and thanks to many of YOU who contacted City Council and let your voice be heard!

More details and a call to action to follow!

      Amen and I can't believe they would actually remove them if only for the fact that this would cause a loss of revenue from tourism.
