GENERAL EVENT NOTICE: Due to recent concern over the spread of the corona virus, Toledo.com suggests confirming with the actual organizers that this event is still proceeding as planned.

Event Details:
We have seen and participated in marches against police brutality, but have we seen real, actionable progress here in Toledo? Help us push the Code of Conduct city-wide and county-wide as a vehicle to curb racial profiling, stop police misconduct before it happens, and improve police-community relations.
 
The Code of Conduct was signed in November 2017 by then-mayor Paula Hicks-Hudson and representatives from the Farm Labor Organizing Committee, the LiUNA Local 500, the Toledo chapter of the NAACP, the Toledo Community Coalition, the FLOC Homies Union, Latins United, the FLOC LOBOS, and the NW Ohio AFL-CIO, which is now known as the Black/Brown Unity Coalition. It is an agreement signed between the city of Toledo and its residents to better police-community relations.
 
We want to improve the relationship between the police force and the community to prevent unnecessary tragedies like that of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Tamir Rice. We want to live in a place that is safe for all members of the community, whether they are citizens, migrant workers, or tourists.
 
So join us at the Black/Brown Unity Coalition Peace Rally on Saturday, October 3rd at 1:00 P.M. to begin implementation of the Code of Conduct city-wide. We know that this can make actionable change in our city and be a beacon of hope around the nation. It is already being considered to be duplicated in other cities such as Mansfield, OH. Help us push this document so that all of Toledo can benefit from it, so that all of Lucas County can benefit from it, and so that all of Ohio can benefit from it.
