Check out this touching video on how the Richmond City Jail put together a special “Father-Daughter Dance” event to give non-violent inmates a chance to bond with daughters.

ABCNEWS.com reports:

In 2012, the father-daughter dance at the Richmond City Jail was born.

It was the brainchild of Angela Patton, who runs Camp Diva, a Richmond nonprofit aimed at empowering young girls. She had heard the concerns of a daughter who had a father in jail. The young girl wanted to attend an event where she could dance with her father too, like others girls and their fathers across the city.

Patton convinced Richmond City Sheriff C. T. Woody Jr. to host the dance inside the jail, and he agreed.

Woody says he agreed because he feels that inmates who are allowed to dance with their daughters will be reminded why they should never return to jail once they’re released.

On Saturday, June 8, a dance was held with daughters ranging from age 4 to 16.
