Various residents of Richmond's public housing and members of RePHRAME spoke to fellow residents and supporters at Sixth Mount Zion Baptist Church on Thursday, September 16, 2010 at 6 PM. Anthony Scott, CEO of Richmond Redevelopment and Housing Authority [RRHA] spoke to the group around minute 30:00.

The chief demands of the group were for RRHA to institute a local payment system and to increase the tenant representation on the RRHA Board. Currently residents have to mail their rent payments to Baltimore, Maryland and out of 7 commissioners on the RRHA Board, only one is a public housing resident.

A spaghetti dinner prepared by Richmond Food Not Bombs followed the meeting.
