Hamilton County, Ohio – On Tuesday Hamilton County Commissioner Victoria Parks unveiled a resolution to declare Racism a Public Health Crisis.

The resolution was introduced at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.

President and COO of the Center, Woodrow Keown, Jr., spoke in support of the resolution:

“The nation was founded on the principles of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Pursuit of happiness is hindered by fear and hatred that is directed daily—overtly and covertly—at black and brown people, simply because of the color of our skin. The deprivation of liberty for Blacks in America is well known and goes by the names of chattel slavery, Jim Crow, “separate but equal”, and systematic or institutionalized racism. Likewise, the simple right of life is threatened by hatred that has led to lynchings, fear that has led to calls of police brutality based largely on implicit biases, and systematic racism that makes the simple fact of being Black hazardous to your health.”

 

At 1 PM Thursday the Commission will hold a Hearing to consider the Resolution “Declaring Racism a Public Health Crisis”.
