Today, my campus will welcome Ryan T. Anderson of the Heritage Foundation to offer biased legal and scientific arguments against trans rights and even trans existence. It turns out he has been invited to speak at @urichmond multiple times in the past. egrollman.com/2018/09/09/rig…

Unless you’ve been under a rock for the past year, you have probably heard about the “School Modernization Referendum.” Here is a great article that summarized what it is. Basically what it does is tell #RVAMayor@LevarStoney to get a plan together (2/25)
to fully fund school infrastructure without raising taxes or publicly state it can’t be done. This was put forward by none other than Paul Goldman and carried primarily by the Richmond Crusade for Voters. The original plan was for Loupassi and Sturtevant to carry (3/25)
Today there was a VA House committee on school safety meeting at Meadowbrook HS in Chesterfield. There has been criticism of this committee as they haven’t had gun control on the table as part of the discussion. (1/6) RVA 🧜🏻♀️
This committee will make a recommendation to the General Assembly at the end of this year for legislation needed in 2019. State legislation is not my expertise by any means but keep your eyes out on media outlets tonight b/c on the agenda today was a scheduled (2/6)
tour of Meadowbrook High School to be given by Donald Green who has been the Safety and Security Manager at Chesterfield County Public Schools since July 2014. Recently there were Facebook posts from Green’s PUBLIC Facebook from 2015 discovered. (3/6)
I think most people know Steve Bannon was at Black Swan books yesterday and a woman confronted him with some choice words triggering the store owner to call the cops. This thread is reality from my perspective. 🧜🏻♀️ #RVA (1/11)
Even outside of the words that have directly come from Bannon’s mouth, he was the executive chairman of Breitbart and declared it the “platform for the alt right.” It is a publication that spreads xenophobic, misogynistic, racist, & generally hateful views.🧜🏻♀️ #RVA (2/11)
His words and the words from Breitbart have empowered a culture of hateful white supremacy and invaded our homes through the internet, television, and other mediums. Those words have made many minorities feel uncomfortable in this country. 🧜🏻♀️ #RVA (3/11)
Steve Bannon was confronted at Black Swan Books this afternoon, leading the owner to call the police. He also appears to be friends with the owner, who half jokingly said he’ll need Bannon to protect him when the police come to lock up the liberals. No room for nazis in Richmond.
I want to tell you all stories about two historic places I visited last year: Devil’s Half Acre in Richmond, VA and Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp in Poland. (1/24) #RVA 🧜🏻♀️
Near the end of April 2017 was the first time I went to the Devil’s Half Acre. Some may also know this site by the name Lumpkin’s Jail. Most don’t know about it at all but it is in Shockoe Bottom. (2/24) #RVA
I had a day date planned with my boyfriend at the time that involved walking all over #RVA. We had just left Church Hill Lookout and were walking down Broad Street. We were trying to decide at what point we would catch a Lyft home. (3/24)
We are loaded up for the @theValentineRVA’s Monumental bus tour! Let’s start with context of demographics. Approximately 40-45 people on board. I see about 3 people who are under 50 (2 of them is). Majority of bus is white. Approx. 3 people of color. #MonumentalRVA 🧜🏻♀️
Tour guide states they will talk about history of monuments and context they went up in. Clear there will be no debates about what should happen to the monuments. #MonumentalRVA 🧜🏻♀️
Just past 1790 house of John Marshall (Chief Justice of Supreme Court) is a Monument to the John Marshall Core of Cadets which was predecessor of ROTC. On site of former John Marshall High School. #MonumentalRVA 🧜🏻♀️
This is a thread that is intended to show how important community involvement and advocacy is. People often speak about gentrification as if it is an inevitable conclusion to development but recent efforts by South Richmond community members tell a different story. #RVA 🧜🏻♀️
In March 2018, @StyleWeekly named Michael and Laura Hild “Best Revivalist Couple” in their Best of Richmond edition. #RVA
Following a May community meeting, on June 15th @__MarkRobinson reported on the expansion of Manchester Historic District. He states that investment following historic district designations often coincide w/ gentrification. #RVA 🧜🏻♀️
