Agnes Broncheau also attended the ombudsman press conference at city hall, representing Spokane VOICES.
Since the early 90s, I've known Agnes as a passionate advocate for addiction recovery and positive Native identity. Now she lends her support to VOICES, a local organization working to provide education, community access, and support to low-income people in the Spokane area.
In her statement to the press, she highlighted the special challenges faced by people with limited resources in the face of police misconduct. An ombudsman with true authortative oversight would help alleviate the burden of the poor.
