Chief Gonzalez and Mayor Lock Dawson Recognize Riverside's NAACP Youth Council
At this week's City Council meeting, Riverside Police Chief Larry Gonzalez and City of Riverside Mayor Lock Dawson presented the Riverside Branch of the NAACP with a plaque to express our gratitude and long-standing partnership with the “Breaking Bread Together” webinar series.
Last year, we collaborated with the Riverside County NAACP Youth Council for a series of conversations entitled “Breaking Bread Together.” Due to COVID-19, the first two events were virtual webinars but the third and final one was an in-person discussion luncheon at our Magnolia Avenue police station. The entire series culminated with a community basketball game and resource fair at Bordwell Park in late July.
This was a very successful dialogue series and game that not only strengthened our relationship with the NAACP but helped build up even better relationships with our local communities and youth.
