YWCA STAND AGAINST RACISM panel discussion

May 27th – 9:00 to 10:00 am

Join us as we explore and discuss local health disparities and policy efforts you can support!

Centuries of structural racism in our country have had a profound negative impact on communities of color, affecting people’s access to quality housing, education, food, transportation, political power, and other social determinants of health. In response, Cincinnati and Hamilton County have both officially declared racism a public health crisis. This is a powerful first step!

Understanding and addressing systemic racism from this public health perspective is crucial to eliminating racial and ethnic inequities, and to improving opportunity and well-being across communities. Our local experts will provide a clearer understanding and tools you can use to work toward a more equitable world.

Young people have been at the forefront of Black Lives Matter protests around the world, taking to the streets and the web to fight for justice and a better world. Young leaders in Cincinnati come together to discuss their experiences growing up and growing into political consciousness in the wake of Timothy Thomas’s murder and civil unrest of 2001.

Presented in partnership with Cincinnati Museum Center, the Cincinnati & Hamilton County Public Library and the Woman’s City Club of Cincinnati.

Incarceration inflicts short- and long-term harms on the lives of those incarcerated as well as their loved ones and communities. The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, in partnership with the National Civil Rights Museum and Families Against Mandatory Minimums, is examining the role race plays in mass incarceration in an upcoming virtual discussion. Modern Day Abolition: Mass Incarceration and Racial Justice brings together a panel of experts to discuss the range of collateral consequences of criminal conviction, including impediments to the restoration of rights, lingering social stigma and barriers to reentry into society. The panel will also break down the impact of incarceration on families, including on children of current and formerly incarcerated parents.

MAY 19TH @ 7PM- Join the program committee of EquaSion’s “A Mighty Stream” Interfaith Racial Justice Initiative for the second webinar in a four-part series examining Faith Perspectives on Racial Justice. This panel aims to explore our spiritual understanding of race, racism, and racial just ice, by applying scriptures, tenets, practices, contemporary writings and/or beliefs to discover the ways we are called individually or collectively to enter racial justice work. Panelists will consider how to enter into truly transformational relationships across difference as an active demonstration of love and justice. Register Here.
