Editor’s Note: Last night, Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer announced the creation of a Youth Advisory Council to work with the Fresno police department. Well over one hundred people packed into The Downtown Club to hear the announcement, made during the “I Am… We Are…” event hosted by Fresno Boys and Men of Color. Youth advocacy groups have been working with Fresno Police to create a place for young people in the community to have input on policing practices. The council will include at least 18 young people from around the city. The kNOw youth photographer Marissa Vang, 15, was at the event and captured these images.
