The 2022-2023 series of Controversy/History celebrates 10 years of BIG community conversations. In this series, the Valentine aims to hold space for Richmonders to engage with topics that are an integral part of everyday life in the city and surrounding areas. To celebrate the 10-year anniversary, we will be re-engaging with our most controversial, heavy-hitting conversation topics over the years: health, transportation, housing, education, and public spaces.
