The purpose of the All-In Cincinnati Coalition is to co-create an equitable community in which Black women can live in healthy, safe, opportunity-rich neighborhoods reflecting their culture; connect to economic opportunities; and have influence in decisions shaping their neighborhoods.

The coalition’s accomplishments in this past year include:

  • In Health, we’ve partnered with Kroger for a low-contact, convenient service that allows customers to shop online for groceries using SNAP benefits or EBT cards and pick up their order curbside at a nearby Kroger store. We’ve also partnered with 84.51 to update the food distribution map to include an overlay of Black women in poverty to address food access. The Hamilton County Board of Commissioners’ declared Racism a Public Health Crisis. Their resolution outlines action steps to address systemic racism and promote justice, including supporting All-In Cincinnati and other local organizations driving racial equity issues.
  • In Housing, we’ve partnered with LISC to support rental and eviction protection policies and the Affordable Housing Trust Fund with Cincinnati City Council.
  • For Economic Mobility, we’ve partnered with the Women’s Fund of GCF and provided support for the passage of the Salary History Ban and voted to endorse the passage of Issue 7 to fix roads, expand transit, and connect people to jobs!
  • In Education, we’ve partnered with Dr. Gail Christopher and local universities to implement Rx Racial Healing trainings throughout the county. The University of Cincinnati now has a Racial Healing Center and will host racial healing circles.
  • For Justice, we’ve partnered with the Community Economic Advancement Initiative and the Urban League to prioritize testing and mask distribution in Black communities. Additionally, the City of Cincinnati approved recommendations from our partnership with the Ohio Justice and Policy Center regarding the Collaborative Agreement and healthy policing.

Please join the All-In Cincinnati Coalition to make a difference and bring to life that transformative purpose.

All-In Cincinnati Coalition meetings are held every fourth Thursday from 3 to 5 p.m. via Zoom. Our next meeting is scheduled for August 27, 2020. Coalition participation has ranged from 50 to 90 people, with the goal to have 100 members who are policy advocates in the areas of health, education, housing, economic mobility and justice.
