The 1067 Foundation hosted its first police interaction session with the Hampton City Police Department @hamptonvapolice . The event turned out to be extremely informative and interactive, with the community and police officers engaging in positive communication about a number of different topics affecting us today. We felt it was important for both sides to have their perspectives and experiences heard, and also to cover current events such as the @starbucks mishap and recent police killings happening all over our country. Overall, both the police and the community left with a better understanding of the other and it was extremely beneficial for the youth to see our police officers in a more positive light. We would like to give a special thank you to our sponsors @shutdown757falcons @hamptonroadshokies @vaeaglesaa and Brown Community Enterprises.
The 1067 Foundation launched with a professional event at Avenue Blue Piano & Wine Bar. The Foundation was joined by many, notably Congressman Bobby Scott (third from left).

The 1067 Foundation is about community. How we can build and unify our area together to make better place for those behind us. The launch cookout was just that.
