Sunday, August 28th, marked the 53rd anniversary of the March on Washington, where Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech. Hundreds of thousands of Americans marched on Washington for jobs and freedom for African-Americans. This courageous event helped lead to the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act, building a foundation for equality that we are still defending today. The march for freedom never dies.

Join us for the 6th Rethinking Racism on Thursday, September 8th from 6:00-9:00pm at The United Church of Christ! An Open Space format will be used again as we continue these important conversations and build relationships. Over 197 unique and amazing individuals have attended these events – we welcome you to attend again or for the first time.
Rethinking Racism is a multiracial alliance challenging white individuals and organizations to acknowledge and end racism. Our movement’s initial effort is bringing large groups of people together for open exchanges that will encourage authentic unity, address denial and provide further pathways to justice. We believe the relationships created will lead us from conversation to actions that will begin to transform racist structures.
This conversation is Free and Open to the public. Please RSVP at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/rethinking-racism-tickets-27128936379

CHRC staff members recently returned from Philadelphia,PA where they participated in the International Association of Official Human Rights Agencies (IOAHRA) conference. This conference convened human rights leaders from throughout the and outside of the country to discuss pressing issues such as gun violence, protection for LGBTQIA communities, racial equity, all through a human rights framework. This four day long event consisted of a variety of engaging sessions, a tour of historic Philadelphia landmarks that were sites of struggles for justice, panels, and prominent keynote speakers.
CHRC is incredibly grateful to the organizers for their enthusiasm and expertise, and is working diligently to connect the creative solutions of these important issues here locally.

In the history of baseball, great attention has been justifiably been paid to the sport’s important role in battling racism. Thank you to Peter Dreier for writing this article and including the role of the Cincinnati Human Relations Commission in battling racism & to the American Prospect for publishing the article.
