*The LWV-RMA's local advocacy program positions were reviewed in 2016. Former positions have been archived. Updated positions are shown here for all areas except two. The entire Local Government Structure position was removed and archived because the specific recommendations for Richmond's government were enacted. The entire Juvenile Justice position was removed and archived because it was outdated. Future advocacy on juvenile justice issues can be undertaken using the LWV Virginia's juvenile justice position.
