At long last, we are excited to announce our Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service has been rescheduled. This community event was originally planned for January 21, but we were forced to postpone due to weather.

Please join the students, faculty, alumni and friends of VCU Political Science for a day of service in honor of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. For this project, we are partnering with Renew Richmond, a local nonprofit organization that uses urban agriculture to address poverty and food insecurity. Our team will be working at Farmstrong, a 1.5-acre community farm adjacent to Armstrong High School. Volunteers will remove debris, clear the garden of old and overgrown vegetation and organize the farm house in preparation for planting later this spring. We hope to see you there!
