Equality

We need to ensure that we are taking the necessary steps to remedy past and current injustices that are disproportionately affecting the people of Cincinnati.

To achieve this I support:

Taking actions to address racial disparities and economic inequalities

  • Unequivocally and unapologetically affirming that Black Lives Matter

  • Building Black Wealth

  • Requiring implicit bias training in our police and city-funded agencies

  • Supporting the Collaborative Agreement refresh to reduce police brutality and profiling, which disproportionately affects Black persons

  • Educating our youth on how to be an Ally for people who are different than us 

  • Decriminalizing marijuana

  • Supporting local minority-owned small businesses

  • Requiring employers to offer equal pay to women and people of color regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity

  • Eliminating cash bail

  • Maintaining a 100% score on the Human Rights Campaign’s Municipal Equality Index (MEI) and working to enhance of city’s services based on their recommendations

Eliminating “Elected Privilege” and rebuilding trust that elected officials are here for the people

  • Allowing City Council to suspend a city elected official who has been indicted for a crime

  • Prohibiting family members of elected officials from doing business with the city

  • Prohibiting Councilmembers from representing clients to negotiate with or lobby the city administration

  • Mandating that any elected official associated with the leadership of any PAC report this annually

Taking actions to address environmental inequalities

  • Strengthening partnerships with agencies that enforce pollution laws

  • Banning plastic bags

  • Striving for net-zero building in all city-backed developments

  • Supporting re-establishment of the Air Nuisance Rule

  • Creating an Environmental Justice Ordinance for the city

  • Collaborating with the county to complete the storm water separation, carrying on Todd Portune’s legacy
