Building Community Collaboration and Trust

Chesterfield, as part of the Greater Richmond region, committed to listening, discussing and sharing ideas that build community collaboration and trust and work toward solutions that overcome barriers and injustice for all. Part of that commitment is helping people to know their rights.

Federal and state laws protect individuals from discrimination or harassment based on sex, race, age, disability, color, creed, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions, marital status, status as a veteran and genetic information. Numerous institutions, many of which operate regionally in our area, carry a mission to educate people about the laws that protect them, advocate for people’s rights and legally challenge instances of discrimination. These resources provide needed information as we work together to recognize and break the many forms and cycles of discrimination.
