Richmond youth get an audience with Attorney General Loretta Lynch

Loretta Lynch, the first African American woman ever appointed to Attorney General, visited Richmond in September as part of a six-city tour. She heard directly from young people in the city about how they think police can improve the way they interact with the community. Part of the message youth gave was their discouragement about the power to change the status quo. “I think it’s easier to be dismissive of what a young person is saying for most adults. Because it’s either they’ve felt like they’ve heard it before, or it doesn’t hold weight. And I think it’s easier especially when young folks are saying things that are challenging and really challenging systems that adults uphold.” Read more on Richmond Pulse.
