Discrimination

Yvette

Myself Yvette Chambers is writing letter. Today for my voice civil rights. As a disabled citizen and civil rights for all citizens. All citizens should have a peace of mind. To return to their residence and their families. To be able to spend quality time with their love ones. Citizens should have rent control in any government subsidized property. Citizens who pays a mortgage should be able to have mortgage control.

Today at 1:45pm EST I received a knock on my apartment door and I looked in the peephole to a unknown white female in a black blouse. I asked her who she was and she stated that she had “something to give me.” When I refused to open the door she became enraged and started kicking and bamming the door. I immediately called security feeling endangered. When I realized she was getting more enraged I called 911. When the police arrived I stated what happened and the lady walked off.
