Our Issues

The Ohio Legislative Black Caucus has been on the front lines advocating for policies that are important for enhancing the African American experience and quality of life here in Ohio for over 50 years. We pride ourselves on being champions for equality in various fields.

Since our inception we have prioritized the reformation of the criminal justice system and defending the right to vote.  In addition, we strive to even the playing field for African Americans by advocating for well-paying jobs, decreasing health disparities, combating poverty, and strengthening the education system.  Education as a priority extends from pre-k  to high school, all the way to our historically black colleges and universities, such as Central State and Wilberforce. Education ensures a bright future for our next generation of African American leaders in Ohio. Click here to see our 2019/2020 Legislative Agenda.
