Eneichmond Foundation screwed up 17th market, now they’re doing this. I guess dead people can’t lose their jobs, unlike businesses and the vendors that were forced to close at 17th.

I’m one of the Friends of East End, the organization that has been working to restore East End since 2013. Enrichmond — which now owns both East End and Evergreen, despite having no cemetery or historic preservation experience — has sought to marginalize us from the beginning rather than partnering with us. It is now demanding that we and other volunteers sign draconian forms that essentially lay claim to all of our work. Naturally, it did not make any attempt to coordinate a Juneteenth cleanup day with us or any other work days it has scheduled over the summer. Today we worked with the Woodland Cemetery volunteers instead — like ours, a true grassroots effort to reclaim a sacred, historic site.
