Talking gun-violence in North Richmond
on September 27, 2011
Last Saturday, Richmond residents and community leaders gathered in North Richmond to call for stronger community relations and an end to gun-violence. The community fair was sponsored by Ground Zero, Operation Richmond, and the McGlothen Temple Evangelist Department.
Complete with grilled hot dogs and hamburgers, snow cones, an air castle, housing and employment specialists, and music from the band Redemption, the event drew residents out their homes all afternoon long. Here’s a snippet of the day’s action.
