9/27/2018, 6 a.m.
A new coalition that includes the Virginia State Conference NAACP and four Richmond area NAACP branches will launch the first of a monthly series of town hall meetings Thursday, Oct. 4.
The first public session will focus on the $1.4 billion proposal to replace the Richmond Coliseum and the court-ordered redistricting of 11 Virginia House of Delegates districts, organizers announced.
The event will be held 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Third Street Bethel A.M.E. Church, 614 N. 3rd St. in Jackson Ward.
The town hall is open without charge.
Additional town hall meetings on topics of public interest are scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 1, and Thursday, Dec. 6, at the same time at Third Street Bethel, which is a member of the coalition, dubbed Central Virginia’s Founding Partners.
Other members, along with the Richmond, Chesterfield, Henrico and Hanover NAACP branches, include the Virginia Alliance Against Mass Incarceration.
