Social Justice/Public Witness – Calendar Week of 2/24/24

The reason speaking out is so important is that it lowers the perceived risk of those who are still silent and have something to say; your courage matters. It makes the waters warmer. Your words matter. They assure others they are not alone and encourage them to speak. Every voice is a key to unlocking another’s. – Ian Smith

Saturday 2/24 at Salem Gardens, 6396 Salem Rd in Mount Washington from 11-9; feel free to hold your own (best recipe for Cincinnati chili I’ve found here; I’ve made it with Beyond beef crumbles 😉 and donate the funds you raise to honor Marian Spencer’s legacy:

Tuesday at 11:30

Don’t forget the MARCC annual meeting Tuesday at 11:30 in the United Way building, 2400 Reading Rd. Vice Mayor Jan-Michele Kearney is featured.

Providing equal justice for all citizens of Hamilton County is a huge and complex responsibility; Woman’s City Club will host Charmaine McGuffey, Hamilton County Sheriff, Wednesday at 7. Zoom in here

Poor People’s Campaign Direct Action next Saturday (3/2) at 11 in front of the Ohio State House; march for economic equity, living wages, healthcare for all, environmental justice and the unity of love, not the division of hate. Interested? Hit Debbie Davidson up for a ride; we would need to leave ~8:30-9 from somewhere in the 275/71 corridor…

Did you know the first Black Ohio lawmaker also wrote a history of Black Americans? One of the reasons I subscribe to Ohio Capital Journal!
