New Project: Building a Community of Support

With one of the most complex acronyms ever -- MRSDVCC -- the Metro Richmond Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Coordinating Committee's core purpose is to create a safe networking and collaborative space for people working in the sexual assault and domestic violence arena. The all-volunteer group has been around for a number of years, but recently experienced some drift in focus. We spent an afternoon with a handful of members last fall, and are reconvening for a pro bono afternoon of facilitation with more members in January. We hope to help the members establish a more sustainable foundation for their important community building work.
