Meeting August 13
         Meeting August 13, 2020
David Gamble, Jr., Deputy Public Defender for Washoe County, spoke with us about his experiences growing up Black in Reno, and why he believes Black Lives Matter is an important social movement.  David grew up in Reno, left to attend law school, and returned to Reno.  He is raising his family here (wife and 2 kids) and is deeply invested in our community.  
The link to his essay, published in the Reno Gazette Journal and viewed almost 100,000 times on Facebook is:
David indicated he believes race relations in Reno the at the lowest level in his lifetime.  There were questions and conversations with the attendees at the meeting.  When asked what we ask individuals can do, he stated that the strongest anti-racism tool is white people talking to other white people.  It is uncomfortable.  We thank him again for sharing his personal experiences and outlook.  Thank you, Heidi, for introducing us to David.
