Women & Politics presents:

Today co-hosts Sheri Shannon and Carol Olson bring on guests: Stephanie Lynch, councilwomen of the 5th district; Rachelle Hunley, Manager of Bridging the Gap at VCU; and LaToya S. Gray, creator of Planned Destruction to talk about housing issues in Richmond. Discussion centers on the issues of homelessness in the city and the impact of red-lining and it’s contribution to the poverty and homelessness of the African-American community most specifically. Stephanie Lynch brings her experience in working within city government to attempt to make change, Rachelle and Carol bring their experience in working with victims of violence in our city and how violence and homelessness intersect, and LaToya describes her work on examining the history of land ownership, valuation and development in the City of Richmond and the maps used to destroy black communities.

Women & Politics presents:

Today we have a special guest, Emily Galvin-Almanza, @glavinalmanza Co-founder of Partners for Justice. To quote their mission:

“PFJ supports the broader movement to dismantle and transform the racist and oppressive systems that disproportionately harm people and communities of color.  The road to change can be long and hard.  Meanwhile, the people and communities affected by the criminal legal system don’t have time to wait.  While we collectively work toward transformative change, our contribution is to fight hand-in-hand with those currently struggling within the criminal legal system.

We also recognize that the influence and impact of white supremacy are pervasive enough to be found within our organization. We dedicate ourselves to the ongoing work of replacing these toxic belief systems with practices that demonstrate our commitment to anti-racism and transformative justice.”
