Signed into law on May 2, 1975, Senate Bill 18 declared the third Monday in January as Martin Luther King, Jr. Day in the state of Ohio. The first proposal for a statewide holiday honoring Dr. King came from the Cincinnati Human Relations Commission, and numerous area legislators were instrumental in the bill’s passage. Among them were the late state Senator William R. Bowen; State Representatives James W. Rankin, William L. Mallory and James T. Luken; and Warren Pate, then of the Ohio AFL-CIO. The first community observance of the holiday was planned by the staff and officers of the YWCA. The Martin Luther King, Jr. Coalition, founded in 1978, has planned the annual commemorative programs for over 30 years.
Since this time, CHRC has been highly instrumental in planning each year’s festivities, and 2016 is no exception.
MLK invites you to join us on Monday, January 18, 2016 for the annual ticketed breakfast, civil rights commemorative march, and Music Hall celebration. For more details visit www.mlkcoalition.com and follow MLK Coalition on Twitter @MLKingCoalition and Instagram MLK Coalition
See you in January ‪#‎MLKWeCantWait‬

Friday, November
20th
Written by Paula
Ison, Secretary, CHRC Board of Commissioners
“Transgender
Day of Remembrance” (TDOR) is held worldwide every November to remember all
transgender people murdered in the past twelve months because of transgender
hatred or prejudice. TDOR initially honored Rita Hester whose murder started
the “Remembering Our Dead” web project with a San Francisco candlelight vigil in 1999. Rita
Hester’s murder, like most transgender murder cases has yet to be solved.
This
year’s TDOR is on Friday, November 20th, at 7pm at the Clifton Cultural
Arts Center
at 3711 Clifton Avenue.
A reception will immediately follow after the event.

TDOR
in intended to raise public awareness of hate crimes against transgender
people, an action that current media does not perform. TDOR publicly mourns and
honors the lives of transgender people who might otherwise be forgotten.
Through TDOR we express love and respect in the face of national indifference.
TDOR gives transgender people and their allies an opportunity to step forward
and memorialize those who have died-by violence.
