Civil rights attorney Connie Rice and co-founder of the Advancement Project was the keynote speaker at the Los Angeles Gang Violence Prevention & Intervention Conference (LAGVPIC) organized by the Violence Prevention Coalition of Greater L.A. (VPC) in downtown Los Angeles on May 22, 2012.

She is the author of “Power Cocedes Nothing” and she spoke about the shortcomings of Los Angeles government officials and their handling of the gang problem. Specifically she explains that massive incarceration such as sweeps, RICO, federal indictments, and other suppression approaches has done little to curb the gang problem during the last 30 years.

We interviewed Connie Rice at USC in 2003.
