Taylor Curtis of the YWCA is a dynamic and thoughtful speaker; her emphasis is on actions that we crowd-source to give us tools in our day-to-day interactions to combat racism.

GAPP’s (Greater Anderson Promotes Peace) next event is Wednesday from 7-9P at St. Timothy’s, 8101 Beechmont. The documentary America’s Truth: Cincinnati which was produced by the Center for Community Resilience at the Millikin School of Public Health at George Washington University, demonstrates the need in our country to correct narratives that place blame on communities of color for the outcomes of racialized inequity rather than on the systems and policies created to produce inequity. Spanning nearly 200 years of housing, education, and public safety policy, the film traces how these decisions continue to produce adversity for black Cincinnatians today.
