Cleveland Politics, Plain Press

Correction

In an article in the January 2015 issue of the Plain Press titled “Collaborative for a Fair, Safe and Just Cleveland works for inclusion of citizens in efforts to reform Cleveland Division of Police” several inaccuracies occurred.  While Rhonda Williams of the Collaborative for a Fair, Safe and Just Cleveland was a speaker at the meeting, the town hall meeting held at the Martin Luther King Library was not hosted by that group as indicated in the article, instead it was convened by the Greater Cleveland Civil and Human Rights Coalition which was formed with the help of the Bill of Rights Defense Committee in 2011.

Also, the Collaborative for a Fair, Safe and Just Cleveland was formed just in the last few months, and was not formed in the aftermath of the 137 shot “Cleveland Atrocity” in November of 2012. The Committee for Social Justice, founded by Don and Norma Freeman, who were in attendance at the Bill of Rights Defense Committee convened meeting, is the group that was formed following the tragic police chase that resulted in the death of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams.
