Public Hearing on a proposed resolution Declaring Racism a Public Health Crisis

On Tuesday, June 30, Hamilton County Commissioner Victoria Parks released a draft of her resolution declaring racism a public health crisis on the banks of the Ohio River- a backdrop of historic significance symbolizing a freedom crossing for slaves and how the journey continues.

Commissioner Parks outlined the draft language that goes beyond supporting and promoting collaborative health efforts, such Cradle Cincinnati, the Hamilton County Oral Health Coalition, the Center for Closing the Health Gap, All-In Cincinnati, and Gen-H in an effort to reduce racial inequities in health. The resolution also commits to expanded training for Hamilton County employees, a county-focused disparity study and expands the Office of Economic Inclusion.

The draft resolution will be the subject of a public hearing on Thursday, July 2nd at 1:00 p.m. during the Commission meeting in order to gain public input. The final vote of the commission is expected to take place the week of July 13th.
