Expect slower traffic this week along Broad Street between Belvidere and Harrison. There will be temporary lane closures while crews work on repairing water valves in the area. This also means that some parts of the community will be without water between 3:00 – 11:00 p.m. on Saturday.
On Monday, the Richmond School Board voted to potentially close three schools, including the Adult Career Development Center on Leigh Street in Jackson Ward.
Public hearings over these school closures will be held before any decisions are final.
On Saturday, May 18, the free exhibition You Have No Right: Law and Justice will close at the Library of Virginia.
Using Virginia cases—and the stories of the people behind them—You Have No Right: Law and Justice will demonstrate how the law affects individuals directly and how people have used the law to achieve political and social goals. Using original records and electronic resources to convey the themes of human rights, citizenship, and the rule of law in a lively and engaging presentation, visitors will explore questions about citizenship, marriage rights, eminent domain, and why prosecutors have to prove guilt and defense lawyers don’t have to prove innocence.
