The President of the Ohio Conference of the NAACP, Tom Roberts, sent this letter to Governor DeWine in response to the requested resignation of the former President of the Ohio State Board of Education and the resignation of another state school board member. Both of the former board members supported an anti-racism resolution that passed last year. That resolution was recently repealed.

Posted @withregram • @tamirscampaign We are heartened and encouraged by the solidarity of those who recently assembled in Washington D.C. to support Ms. Rice and continue the long walk to justice for our beloved Tamir.
We cannot forget, however, that Tamir’s story began here —in Cleveland. On Tuesday November 9th we will rally and speak out against the seven years of malfeasance, obstruction, prosecutorial misconduct, and callous political posturing that has left Tamir’s mother still without justice and the City of Cleveland with an open spiritual wound.
Meet us at Public Square to demand Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael O’Malley appoint a special prosecutor to REOPEN THE CASE AND PURSUE CRIMINAL CHARGES FOR THE DEATH OF TAMIR RICE.
This December, two statutes of limitations will be expiring on the local level: for obstruction of justice and perjury charges against the officers Loehmann and Garmback. That is why it is more important than ever to galvanize the people and let our voices be heard.
We are resolute in our belief in a child’s right to play, the sanctity of human life, and the need to protect civil and human rights. We demand accountability for police crimes, transparency from the justice system as a whole, and an end to anti-Black violence.
