Join us
to start the conversation about how our children are getting to and from school
on a daily basis. Cincinnati
has one of the highest number of children in poverty and about 45% of CPS
students do not receive transportation to school.  Given the number of students living in
poverty, it’s very likely they have little or no access to transportation. The
likelihood of them attending school on a consistent basis is very low.  Access to transportation affects attendance
which in turn impacts achievement.
Opening
remarks by Cincinnati Vice Mayor David Mann.
Keynote
Speaker: author, educator and sociologist Dr. Peter Cookson of the American
Institutes for Research.
Afternoon
Panel will look at the issue of student transportation equity with the help of
an expert panel from multiple disciplines including:
•    Dr. Jessica Saunders, RAND
•    Dr. Ericka King-Betts, Executive Director,
     Cincinnati
Human Relations Commission
•    Dr. Noble Maseru, Cincinnati Health
Commissioner
•    John Davis, Director, Transportation-Cincinnati Public
Schools
•    Michael Moore, P.E., Director,
Transportation & Engineering
•    Tom Arnold, P.E., Ohio Department of
Transportation
This event is supported
by the National Institutes of Justice’s “Developing Knowledge About What
Works To Make Schools Safe” grant.

Yesterday, CHRC’s Executive Director, Dr. Ericka King-Betts, Community Outreach & Engagement Coordinator, Christina Brown & Community Outreach Advocate, Pastor Pete Mingo had the opportunity to attend a roundtable discussion with Attorney General Lynch. The purpose of the roundtable was to discuss the City of Cincinnati’s experience with police-community relations, particularly the best practices that have come as a result of the collaborative agreement and (continuing) hard work from the community and police. 
At the Cincinnati Human Relations Commission we will continue to work with the diverse commissions comprised of business and community members & youth to enhance relationships between the police and community, educate others on Cincinnati’s Collaborative Agreement, and provide trainings on cultural sensitivity & understanding. Since 1943, the Cincinnati Human Relations Commission has worked tirelessly to help our community to overcome prejudice and discrimination, build mutual respect and understanding, and to become more harmonious and cohesive.
