NAACP, C.O.P.E., Others, Urge Accountability from San Bernardino City Council

The NAACP and other organizations are seeking to have the San Bernardino City Council reaffirm its 2020 resolution declaring racism a public health crisis after a speaker was interrupted by racist epithets during a city council meeting. The NAACP is demanding that the city leadership do what is necessary to combat racism in the city and to hold the people in power accountable. The city council voted to appoint Charles Montoya as the new city manager, despite objections from public members and the NAACP. The city is working with the San Bernardino Police Department to identify and investigate those involved for violation of Penal Code 403.
