Equitable Regionalism in Cleveland


The Institute worked on behalf of African American political and business leaders in the Cleveland region, to develop a plan for equitable regionalism in Northeast, Ohio.  Several of the strategy and policy recommendations posed in this work have been adopted in the region. These include: a new regional magnet school in the City of Cleveland and a minority business accelerator for the region and a regionalism cabinet position in the City of Cleveland.

In addition to the policies suggested by the Institute, the Institute also helped strengthen the engagement of African American leaders around the issues of regionalism, regional development and revenue sharing in Northeast Ohio.
