UNITE A CITY.    

Honor & Unite!

 

Monumental Honor is a community development nonprofit that seeks to memorialize the legacy of Richmond’s Medal of Honor Recipients.

 

Through community building, the public arts, and community service, we are honoring Richmond’s local heroes. Our ultimate goal is to erect a monument in downtown Richmond that will mark the selfless acts of these local heroes from various ethnicities, ranks, military services, and wars.

 

Together, we can inspire and unite the city by sharing a part of RVA’s history that all can be proud of for generations to come.

 

A New Vision for RVA.

HONOR A LEGACY.
