Description

RVA Rapid Transit, the Storefront for Community Design, the Richmond Food Justice Alliance, the YWCA of Richmond and the James River Association are among a dozen-plus nonprofit organizations partnered with host Richmond magazine to present Mayorathon: Policy Jam.

The event will feature an in-depth, entertaining and informal discussion with Mayor Stoney on policy issues, as well as special appearances from Richmond Comedy Coalition and others. To provide a framework for the evening’s conversation, the participating organizations will share their reviews of the mayor’s work to date as well as short lists of suggested steps for the mayor and the City Council to pursue through 2020. Stoney will reflect on his accomplishments as Richmond’s mayor, and the audience at the ICA will weigh in on what his administration’s priorities could be for the remainder of his term. 

Mayorathon: Policy Jam will be held Thursday, Feb. 28 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Institute for Contemporary Art with a reception to follow in the museum’s cafe. Seating is limited and first-come, first-served, but an overflow space on site also will be provided. Doors will open at 5:45 p.m. Dominic Willsdon, executive director of the ICA at VCU, will welcome guests to the host site.
