With Liberty and Racial Justice for All

In response to the tragic death of George Floyd and the protests that we as a country witnessed in 2020, the Ohio State Bar Foundation (“OSBF”) created an additional grants cycle for funding to support initiatives working on long-lasting impact and institutional change for racial justice.  The Racial Justice Initiative supports projects that specifically identify, address, and challenge systemic racism that hinders the pursuit of justice and public understanding of the rule of law for historically marginalized communities of color in Ohio.

Our Topics

Hear not only from the OSBF but also from its grantees about their groundbreaking initiatives that tackle this problem in unique and significant ways, from creating a non-policing, anti-racist emergency response system for people experiencing a mental health crisis; to leading a comprehensive review of certain homicides from the last decade in cooperation with a major city; to conducting an audit of all diversity, inclusion, and anti-racism programs and activities in a community to increase discussion and collaboration between local governmental, educational, and community-based organizations. Learn about these efforts and others that have been funded to promote racial justice for all.
