If you have notified HR in writing then that is good. If the conduct is ongoing and nothing is being done, you need to hire an employment law attorney about pursuing a harassment, discrimination, and hostile work environment lawsuit. Most likely you will now file a complaint with the Equal employment opportunity Commission or the Nevada Department of Labor. They will typically evaluate the merits of your claim and sort of "green light" you going ahead with the lawsuit.
