Feedback Requested: PlanRVA Environmental Justice Work Survey

Greetings Capital Regional Land Conservancy!

My name is Rashaunda Lanier-Jackson and I serve as the Community Engagement Manager at PlanRVA. As we head into 2023, PlanRVA is working with DEQ, member localities, and other partners to gain insight into current environmental justice work in the Richmond region. Up until now, PlanRVA’s focus has primarily been on data, coordination among government agencies, and public education about water quality topics.

We have created an Environmental Justice Work Survey to:

  1. Gauge your experience with environmental justice work.

  2. Identify possible partners with whom we may collaborate with in the future.

  3. Develop possible projects to support your invaluable work.

  4. Provide PlanRVA staff with additional resources that will complement our work.

As we hope for this program to grow and better support environmental justice across the Richmond region, we are reaching out to better understand organizations who are already doing valuable work in this space. Please take a moment to complete our brief Environmental Justice Work Survey by December 1st. There are no wrong answers and even if your work is limited, we want to understand where there is room for improvement.

Additional resources:

DEQ page on the Chesapeake Bay TMDL

PlanRVA Water Quality Planning page

If you would like to discuss further, please reach out to Sarah Stewart (sstewart@planrva.org) and Rebekah Cazares (rcazares@planrva.org) and we would be happy to set up a Zoom call with you. Thank you for your help!

Best,

Rashaunda Lanier-Jackson
