About RCCA

Richmond Community Coalition Association (RCCA) was founded in 2014 by a group of concerned Richmond community leaders, including former MLA Rob Howard, and former Richmond School Board Chair Sylvia Gwozd. "Our grassroots Coalition's goal is to create more opportunities for Richmond citizens to get involved in municipal government - and get more people voting in the municipal election… We felt there was a lack of community input, a lack of opportunity for community input in the Richmond landscape. We're here to fill that gap," said Rob Howard at the party’s inauguration. RCCA’s objective is to promote grassroots local civic engagement and participation in City Hall and School Board. Since the elector organization’s inception, it has successfully elected City Councillors Ken Johnston, Chak Au, and School Trustee Jonathan Ho. Richmond Community Coalition advocates for open and transparent government, while striving to find evidence-based, balanced, and sustainable solutions to the challenges Richmond is facing. Taking action with public input, through consultation, is the RCCA approach. Despite the global pandemic, RCCA has organized several virtual town hall meetings on Richmond property taxes, Public Safety, and COVID-19 Vaccination. RCCA organized a grassroots petition against the 5.68% property tax increase in 2021, and a petition against the provincial Gas Tax increase in 2022.
