Register for A Focus on the 5th

A Focus on the 5th is a collaborative civic project of over 17 Richmond based community organizations. We represent residents and members from all corners of the city committed to seeing local government deliver smart policies that make Richmond a more equitable, thriving, and urban place to live. Through questionnaires, forums, and events, we hope to educate Richmonders about their elected leaders while keeping those leaders accountable to building a progressive future for our city.


To highlight, explain, and parse through the thicket of Richmond’s city government, Mayorathon coordinates the talents and expertise of a host of local community organizations.

Participating partners all contribute their experience with the issues Richmond is wrestling with today. They inform every policy position, vet every evaluation, and recommend every priority. The final content of any Mayorathon project is supported by these organizations’ grounded work, in many cases over years and decades, and their knowledge of all the subjects Mayorathon tackles to advance our city’s progress.

The participating partners change between different projects. The network of organizations includes all these great Richmond names:
