In the name of accountability and transparency, #RVAMayor @LevarStoney, can you and your Police Chief clarify the @RichmondPolice press release today regarding the completion of the #MarcusDavidPeters investigation and what you and Durham have committed. #HelpNotDeath (1/14)
In this press release, it is stated that Durham will host a discussion AFTER the CA’s office reviews the report. Durham also states that the promised community meeting is to explain and educate.

Will this be a discussion or lecture? (2/14) #HelpNotDeath #MarcusDavidPeters
A lecture doesn’t seem to meet the family’s demand for Durham and Stoney to attend a community meeting to discuss police, procedures, and accountability. Durham’s statement sounds like an informational session about curriculum. (3/14)

Just arrived at the community meeting to call for justice and accountability for #MarcusDavidPeters. There are chairs reserved for #RVAMayor @LevarStoney and @RichmondPolice Chief Durham. Will they come to fill them? #HelpNotDeath 🧜🏻‍♀️
The demands and additional information. #MarcusDavidPeters #HelpNotDeath 🧜🏻‍♀️
We are about to get started and I’m counting over 75 attendees. No #RVAMayor or Chief Durham at this point but 9th District #RVACouncil member @thedrmikejones is in attendance. #MarcusDavidPeters #HelpNotDeath 🧜🏻‍♀️

This is a thread that is intended to show how important community involvement and advocacy is. People often speak about gentrification as if it is an inevitable conclusion to development but recent efforts by South Richmond community members tell a different story. #RVA 🧜🏻‍♀️
In March 2018, @StyleWeekly named Michael and Laura Hild “Best Revivalist Couple” in their Best of Richmond edition. #RVA
Following a May community meeting, on June 15th @__MarkRobinson reported on the expansion of Manchester Historic District. He states that investment following historic district designations often coincide w/ gentrification. #RVA 🧜🏻‍♀️
