Policing and Racial Justice: Federal, Ohio and Local Laws: Home

Deeming racism a public health crisis may be new, but within public health research and advocacy, racism’s broad and devastating impact on Black Americans is well-recognized. Compared to whites, African Americans receive less overall health care and have a lower life expectancy, more than double the rate of infant mortality and higher death rates from a multitude of health threats, including pregnancy-related complications, cancerhomicide and now COVID-19. See Want evidence of systemic racism? Look to public health, from OSU's College of Public Health. 

On top of the before mentioned health affects, racism also impacts policing. This libguide will focus on racial inequities within law enforcement and what legal remedies are available, including lawsuits and governmental actions.
