“Ric was also one of the eight delegates chosen to travel to Geneva, Switzerland in November of 2014 to represent the We Charge Genocide coalition. The coalition successfully presented a shadow report and testified at the United Nations, charging the Chicago Police Department with genocide and torture actions on Black and brown youth within the city of Chicago; helping to create a worldwide connection that resulted in coverage all over the US and Internationally as well.”
