CLEVELAND, Ohio (WKYC) – With just a few months until Cleveland hosts the Republican National Convention, leaders from the Cleveland chapter of the NAACP are voicing their security concerns around the event with local leaders.

The group asked for officials to share their RNC-relatedsecurity plans with the public in a letter sent to Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson and Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish.

“People are contacting the offices of the NAACP questioning whether they should go to work downtown, if they will be safe at any of our many restaurants and tourist attractions, and what limitations will be placed on their liberty,” the group wrote in the note.

The group added that protests held in the city around the Tamir Rice and Michael Brelo cases were “child’s play compared to what many think will occur in our city in July.”
