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 field.

Since our inception we have put a priority in advocating for reforming the criminal justice system, ensuring the fundamental right to vote is not infringed upon, securing a fair playing field for African Americans seeking good-paying jobs, addressing health disparities, combating poverty and strengthening the education system, from pre-k to high school and all the way to our historically black college and universities, such as Central State University and Wilberforce to help ensure a bright future for the next generation of African American leaders here in Ohio.
