Since 1943, the Cincinnati Human Relations Commission (CHRC) has remained steadfast in its efforts to bring together communities to overcome prejudice and discrimination.  This ruling is a win for CHRC & others who are dedicated to connecting cultures and communities and ensuring that we are all living in communities where prejudice and discrimination can no longer hide.

The Cincinnati Human
Relations Commission (CHRC) Endorses

                                      The Episcopal Church
“The State of Racism” Forum

 

Cincinnati,
Ohio – For the past year, the Cincinnati Human Relations Commission (CHRC),
churches and other local non-profits participated in sending out surveys and
publicizing the Episcopal Church’s efforts to increase awareness and create
dialogue regarding “The State of Racism”.

On
November 15th, 2013, the Episcopal Church will host an online forum centering
on a critical topic for our times:  50
Years Later:  The State of Racism in
America.  Originating from St. Andrew’s
Episcopal Cathedral in Jackson, MS (Diocese of Mississippi), this 90-minute
ecumenical forum will be a live webcast beginning at 1:00 pm, CST.

The
forum will be moderated by well-known journalist and PBS commentator Ray
Suarez. Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori is the keynote speaker. Two
panel discussions will focus on main themes: Racism in America today – Why does it persist? And Racism in America’s
future – Where is there hope for change?

This year marks significant landmark
anniversaries in the nation’s struggle to end discrimination, provide equal rights
and combat racism. Examples are the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation
Proclamation and in 1964 the Civil Rights Act was signed into law.

Panelists
will be recognized leaders from faith groups, NGOs, the media, academia and
government. The forum will begin with a thought-provoking video, and viewers
will be able to submit questions to the participants during the live webcast.
The event also supports 2 Anglican Marks of Mission in dealing with issues of
racism which are to respond to human need by loving service, and to seek to transform
unjust structures of society.

The Cincinnati Human Relations Commission is honored to have been
part of this effort to increase awareness and create dialogue regarding the state
of racism in our nation. Since 1943, the CHRC has remained steadfast in
its efforts to bring together community stakeholders to help our community to
overcome prejudice and discrimination; and build mutual respect and
understanding. During the most critical of times, the CHRC has always been
there turning the community’s needs into action, connecting cultures and
communities and ensuring that we are all living in communities where prejudice
and discrimination can no longer hide.

the forum please go to the website at www.ube.org and for
