Few Green Spaces & Hotter Neighborhoods in Richmond

Everyone, including the New York Times, is talking about the heat in Richmond.

Jeremy Hoffman from the Science Museum of Virginia and Kendra Norrell with the City of Richmond’s RVAGreen 2050 Initiative join Bill and Eric for this timely discussion. They explore the decisions that were made in the 1930s and 40s that resulted in hotter neighborhoods, less access to green spaces and poorer health outcomes for communities of color in 2020. They also explore what actions we can take today to improve Richmond tomorrow.
