CENTERING EQUITY IN THE SUSTAINABLE BUILDING SECTOR INITIATIVE

10/28/19

WORKING RETREAT

Communities of color and low-income communities bear the brunt of the impacts of unhealthy, energy inefficient,
and disaster vulnerable buildings through poor health and financial impacts of high energy bills, as well as the
disproportionate negative effects of climate change, to which buildings contribute as a major consumer of fossil fuel
based energy. Yet, as one looks around the tables or worksites of the sustainable and regenerative building sector,
there is little representation of the populations most impacted by our current proliferation of unsustainable,
inefficient, sometimes unsafe, and often unhealthy building stock. Whether it’s as policy makers, advocates,
architects, project managers, contractors, or even in the construction workforce, the most impacted communities
are underrepresented in the design, construction, and occupancy of sustainable, regenerative, healthy buildings.

National Week of Non-Violence

October 19, 2017

 

The Honorable Mayor, William D. Sessoms, Jr.

Members of City Council

 

Dear Mayor and Council Members: On behalf of the Human Rights Commission (HRC), I would like to thank you for your support in proclaiming October 15, 2017 through October 23, 2017 the Week of Non-Violence.

 

The Week of Non-Violence was initiated in 2013, in recognition of countless minority youth and adults, who are victims of gun violence and random violence. The goal is to promote and educate peaceful means of conflict resolution and de-escalation techniques in law enforcement and the community.

 

The Virginia Beach Human Rights Commission (HRC) is proud to join with Black Women for Positive Change, the City of Virginia Beach, the African American Cultural Center, faith- based leaders, and national organizations in recognizing the 5th Annual Week of Non-Violence.

 

The HRC remains committed to advocate for the human rights of all and to work towards a just, nonviolent, equitable and inclusive community.

 

Sincerely,

Rajeeb Islam, Chairman Human Rights Commission
