RICHMOND, CALIFORNIA – The Richmond Standard published the following story on last weekend’s “Third Annual Native American Walk” in Richmond, California:
Dozens of community members marched through Richmond on Saturday with the United Urban Warrior Society’s California Chapter to spread awareness about alcohol abuse.
The Third Annual Native American Walk for Sobriety, organized by Richmond resident Mike Kinney, invited the community to join a walk and dialogue from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. starting at San Pablo and Macdonald avenues. The event led to a barbecue at Nichol Park put together by the Men & Women of Purpose.
Joining the march were a number of community leaders such as City of Richmond Crime Prevention Manager Michelle Milam, Richmond Police Activities League Executive Director Larry Lewis, Contra Costa County Supervisor John Gioia, former Richmond City Councilmember Vinay Pimple, WCCUSD board member Val Cuevas and Contra Costa Board of Education member Fatima Alleyne.
