Black Caucus President Rep. Alicia Reece reacts to Urban League report
“The State of Black Cincinnati: Two Cities”

CINCINNATI, OH – State Representative and Ohio Legislative Black Caucus President Alicia Reece responded today to the Urban League of Greater Southwestern Cincinnati’s State of Black Cincinnati: Two Cities report.

Rep. Reece released the following statement:

“Today’s report shows that the prosperity gap is widening and African Americans are being left behind in every area. I am hopeful that this report will not sit on the shelf but will spark action on jobs, justice reform, healthcare, African American business, voting rights, and economic prosperity. We must break out of the box of just a replacement program and move toward the expansion of African Americans in decision-making positions in leadership, entrepreneurship, non-profit, corporate and private sector industries that oversee budgets and funding.”

Rep. Reece also announced the statewide OLBC Prosperity Tour 2015, which will kick off in Cincinnati at the end of September and will address these issues.
