A MESSAGE FROM DR. DANNY AVULA,
Director of Richmond City and Henrico County Health Districts

"The horrific events of the past few weeks have reminded us that racism is an ever-present and deadly force in our society. Police violence is one facet of that, and it is undeniably a public health issue. A key part of our Health Department's mission is to work with communities to create the conditions that lead to health and well being. In this context, pursuing health means crying out for justice."A MESSAGE FROM DR. DANNY AVULA,
Director of Richmond City and Henrico County Health Districts

The horrific events of the past few weeks have reminded us that racism is an ever-present and deadly force in our society. Police violence is one facet of that, and it is undeniably a public health issue. A key part of our Health Department's mission is to work with communities to create the conditions that lead to health and well being. In this context, pursuing health means crying out for justice.

We stand with those who are taking to the streets to demand justice for George Floyd and so many other black men and women who have died unjustly or suffered under the weight of our broken systems.

We also stand against violence and vandalism, as these are not the pathway to productive change. Violence deepens the trauma of communities that are already hurting, and it undermines the power of nonviolent leaders. Every person in Richmond deserves safety, opportunity, and respect, and our agency will continue to work tirelessly alongside peaceful community advocates to achieve these goals. Please be safe, and love and care for one another as we work to repair and heal Richmond together.
