City Hall asks victims of discrimination and intimidation to report incidents

Dozens of incidents of discrimination have been collected by city officials in the weeks since the election.  Most notably, a can driver was beaten by a man yelling ‘Trump! Trump!’ on November 12th.  Other examples are verbal abuse, threats, and physical abuse.  The city commission is asking those interested in filing a complaint to send the information via email to CRC@grcity.us.  If you experience intimidation, you are asked to first call 911.  More information about the city’s statement can be found here.
