Who is RVA Dirt?
To put it simply, we are a bunch of local politics nerds, community organizers, and advocates. When you get that combination of people together, you can't just complain about a problem... you end up doing something to solve it. It all started when we kept finding out about events at the last minute and wanted a central place to post this information for the community. Of course a community calendar spiraled into all of the different things we are passionate about and so RVA Dirt was born.
The goal of our existence is to create better access to local government for the average Richmond resident. Sometimes that manifests in the form of snarky live tweeting government meetings for those who can not attend or are bored out of their minds otherwise. Other times that means deep diving into municipal government documents and newspaper archives to find answers to our burning late night questions.
