If you follow local news, if you're an avid reader of RVA blogs, if you have a single hip friend on any social network living in Richmond you should be aware of the issues involving CAPS and their unorthodox methods of 'purifying' our city.
Whether or not this issue directly effects you it has and will continue to indirectly influence your life in a number of ways. When you can't see live local or touring acts for under $20 at the local watering hole. Maybe when your favorite spot to catch dinner and a show closes it's doors. When First Friday ceases to exist artists will no longer have an outlet to display their wares, then off to Portland, NY, and Chicago they go. Slowly we may see the VCU arts department become even less relevant and the influx of bright, young, creative minds flooding in to bolster our local economy becomes a distant memory.
If none of those examples have any bearing on your life, why not take a stand against the city of Richmond getting too big for it's britches and taking away the civil liberties of your friends and neighbors?
Join us, we will fight, we will make you informed, and we will not bend over and take it in the ass any longer...
