WE ARE VB is a not-for-profit organization committed to building a Virginia Beach community where kindness matters. WE ARE VB will pursue impactful initiatives and programs within our community. We are founded on the beliefs that kindness matters, small changes can grow into movements, and unity of effort will only strengthen our community. Each of us has the power to make life better for another, and through WE ARE VB, we collectively have the power to affect real change in Virginia Beach.
A grassroots movement is defined as one that "encourages community members to contribute by taking responsibility and action for their community." Let's do this!
