Systems and Social Justice: Justice and Safety Community Conversation
January 23 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm EST
The theme for this series is “Systems and Social Justice” and part 4 of the series is JUSTICE AND NEIGHBORHOOD SAFETY. The 2020 double pandemics of COVID and racial uprisings sparked by the murder of George Floyd awakened the world to racial disparities BIPOC and especially Black folks have known about for centuries. 2021 intensified the explosion of exposed systemic injustice with a polarizing presidential election, the Capital insurrection and continued COVID-related community disparities. This series will center and uplift the lesser known but true, lived experiences of residents in Ohio. The series will serve as a convening space, particularly for Black and other BIPOC folks uniquely impacted by the last two arguably unprecedented years in U.S. history. This community conversation series is in partnership with the Equity Now Coalition and the Ohio History Connection will serves as its oral history partner.
