NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC – The New Hanover County & City of Wilmington Community Relations Advisory Committee (C-RAC) will begin offering a Community Resource Outreach Site on Monday, June 10 at the downtown library located at 201 Chestnut Street. Residents who may have experienced prejudice or discrimination can come to the outreach site every Monday from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. and talk with a C-RAC representative.

The committee does not complete investigations or litigation, but it can assist individuals in filing discrimination complaints with specific agencies, as well as provide resources to assist residents with any issues or situations.

In addition, C-RAC will be hosting quarterly “Meet and Greets” throughout the county to inform residents of who the C-RAC is, what it does, and how it assists community members with issues related to prejudice and discrimination. The first Meet and Greet will be held on Wednesday, June 12, 5-6 p.m., at the Creekwood South Community Center at 714 Emory Street. After an information session on the C-RAC there will be a brief discussion on transportation issues and needs for residents in the Creekwood area.

“The Community Relations Advisory Committee is passionate about reaching our community in the community,” said Tufanna Bradley-Thomas, New Hanover County’s community affairs coordinator. “These outreach efforts will do just that. They will meet people where they are, offer one-on-one assistance, and be a resource to guide residents through discrimination complaints.”
