OHIA Joins Opposition to Cleveland Police Decisions

Today the ACLU of Ohio released a letter urging Cleveland to continue on a path of reform and reject recent developments that would disrupt progress, including participation in the DOJ’s National Public Safety Partnership and the possible reinstatement of Timothy Loehmann, the officer who killed Tamir Rice.

Lynn Tramonte, Director of Ohio Immigrant Alliance, said: “We support this effort because public safety, dignity, and respect must be protected rights for all. Under Trump, the Justice Department is a political agency that does not share our U.S. values and should not be invited into Ohio communities by the City of Cleveland, or others.”
