Weekly Reporter Roundtable

Mar 9, 2020

Crime, drugs, and guns top the list of social issues most concerning to African Americans in Ohio, according to a statewide poll released last week. 

The Ohio Legislative Black Caucus Foundation collaborated with the Akron University Bliss Institute to poll 1,500 black Ohioans on a wide range of issues.

Most favored small government and gun rights, but overwhelmingly supported abortion rights and stricter environmental laws.

Today on the Weekly Reporter Roundtable: perspectives of black Ohioans and more in political news.
