About

TAG:

The Teen Advocacy Group of Richmond is a loose structure to bring people together in the simplest of ways-- talking. Us advocates, organizers, and activists are in the same boat, and even as little as brainstorming with, talking to, and lifting up each other makes an incalculable difference.

Anyone can create their own TAG for themselves and their friends (see Create page) and we hope to be able to spread these groups across the Richmond area and connect with others who are working to make a difference as well. One person alone cannot change the world, but a group, a team, a movement can.
