The Graffiti Resource Council (GRC) attended at the National League of Cities (NLC) 2016 City Summit Nov. 16-18 in Pittsburgh, PA. The NLC conference is the largest gathering of local elected officials and staff in the country, and is designed to offer educational and networking opportunities to increase the effectiveness of local leaders. Over 4,000 officials attended this year’s Summit and dozens of exhibitors, entertainers and sponsors.
The Graffiti Resource Council (GRC) attended two key events across the country in support of Latino leaders to engage with city officials concerned with graffiti vandalism: The Second Annual Latino Caucus Foundation Gala in Chicago and the Latino Leaders Network Luncheon in Los Angeles. The Latino community across the country is hit hard by graffiti vandalism and would benefit from GRC’s positive, innovative anti-graffiti strategies.
From August 8-11, 2016, the GRC attended the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) annual Legislative Summit in Chicago. The NCSL Legislative Summit draws in state policymakers from across the country and provides attendees the opportunity to exchange ideas and discuss policies affecting the states. This year’s summit drew in over 5,000 attendees, which included state legislators, legislative staff, members of the business community, educators, and stakeholders.
