City Council Stands United Against Hate Speech

Sept 6, 2017 - ​Recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia, and elsewhere in the country, prompted Councilmember Grausz to request Council's consideration of a collective letter to the community speaking out against hate speech. 
 
In consultation with Mayor Bassett and Deputy Mayor Bertlin, the letter was shared with the full Council at Tuesday night's (September 5) regular meeting for its consideration. 

The full Council approved the letter and signed it unanimously, finding that it aligns with a prior Proclamation on civil discourse adopted November 21, 2016. 
 
Read the Letter to the Community.
