NAACP denounces Schor's treatment of employees, references discrimination lawsuits

LANSING The Lansing chapter of the NAACP has "denounced Mayor Andy Schor's actions" related to his handling of former city employees and incidents involving people in Lansing police custody, according to a news release Tuesday from the civil rights organization.

Schor announced last month he is running for another four-year term. The date of the news release coincides with Tuesday's filing deadline for candidates seeking a spot on Lansing's 2021 ballot.

"We are in a dire moment in Lansing and we must begin to address critical concerns of the people," the news release said. "Numerous lives are being affected by Mayor Schor's actions and must be addressed immediately. ... We demand accountability now not more reports and recommendations."

Schor hired a consultant last year to lead a diversity task force that is reviewing wide-ranging racial equity issues in the city. Among other issues, the task force is examining Lansing's climate for city employees. It also could recommend reforms to the police department's use of force policy.
