Social Justice Action Group

In support of social justice activism in our communities in 2020, WCC has established a new Social Justice Action Group (SJAG), chaired by David Siders, WCC Vice President of Civic Engagement. The Social Justice Action Group addresses inequities due to systemic poverty, racism, and classism.
This action group will present opportunities and resources to educate and empower WCC members and the public on the resulting issues that create barriers to people in our communities who are dispropor-tionately impacted. WCC has folded its Thriving Cincinnati project into the work of the SJAG, which will collaborate with other social justice groups, provide opportunities to advocate for legislation, and offer opportunities for education and connection with others.
Community need drives the following priorities of the SJAG: racial justice and criminal justice reform; voting rights; livable wages and affordable housing; equitable access to healthcare and education. If one part of the community cannot thrive, we all cannot thrive.
Watch for an information session coming soon.
