Virginia Unity Project Hosts Community Forum

The Virginia Unity Project is hosting a community forum to give Newport News residents an opportunity to share their ideas and wishes concerning the selection of the next Newport News Police Chief. The forum is being held Wednesday, October 18 from 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at Heritage High School, 5800 Marshall Avenue in Newport News. The forum is free and open to the public. 

The Virginia Unity Project encourages residents to attend the forum, join in the discussion, and express their opinions. They believe that in light of the challenges with police and communities across the country, it would be beneficial if residents have a voice in the process. The Virginia Unity Project is a non-political, faith led collaboration that works together to address community issues.
