Cincinnati is the 6th most segregated city in America and its time to address that. There are two sides of Cincinnati – a Black and a White. We need to address our pervasive and systemic racial injustices.
Rebuild Black Wealth
Years of oppression have resulted in our Black Communities being seriously disadvantaged when it comes to accruing wealth. We need to address this and focus on re-building Black Wealth.
We need to acknowledge that Black Lives are disproportionately taken at the hands at the police. Our policies and legislation needs to reflect this.
Implicit Bias Training
We need to require implicit bias training in our police and city-funded agencies to help educate people in positions of power about their biases and how they impact our marginalized communities.
Strengthen the Collaborative Agreement Refresh
The collaborative agreement lays out policies that help reduce police brutality and harmful racial profiling and it must be supported.
We need to educate our youth about systemic racism and how they can be allies to people who look different from them.
Ending the War
The war on drugs disproportionately impacted our Black Communities and we must end it, including by decriminalizing marijuana.
