In mid-August, Citizens for a Safer Cleveland and More Than A Vote officially launched their partnership to improve, reinforce, and strengthen police accountability in Cleveland.
Our partnership with More Than A Vote focuses on uplifting the voices of the Black and brown families directly impacted by police brutality in Cleveland. Our first step is to share the powerful stories of Cleveland mothers like Brenda Bickerstaff and Alicia Kirkman about the devastating impact of police violence.
Led by Lebron James, More Than A Vote was launched in June of 2020 by a group of Black athletes, following the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor and amid the Black Lives Matter protests with the goal of energizing, educating, and protecting Black voters. Citizens for a Safer Cleveland is excited to partner with More Than a Vote in achieving our shared goal of a more just criminal justice system.
