“Love Walk” fills the streets of downtown Grass Valley

“A racial incident in downtown Grass Valley this week — where slurs were shouted at a Nevada Union High School student as he walked down Mill Street, according to his father on Facebook — has concerned local residents, including the Nevada Union High principal, and it is being held up as a teachable moment,” as Sierra Foothills Report reported, adding “There is also an informal downtown Grass Valley walk taking shape for 5 p.m. on Friday, as a way for people to show their support for this family.”

On Friday night, Facebook was lit up with “citizen journalist” reports of the “love walk,” which drew hundreds and hundreds of locals. This photo is from Debbie Lange’s Facebook page. “Today in my town ❤️❤️❤️,” she wrote.
