CLEVELAND, Ohio Angela Shute-Woodson, director of the community relations board for the city of Cleveland and senior advisor to Mayor Justin M. Bibb, has been added as a speaker for Women's March Cleveland's sixth anniversary rally and march at Market Square Park across from the Westside Market on Saturday, Jan, 21, 2023, which is also the 50th anniversary weekend of Roe v Wade. A sister march to marches nationwide, Cleveland's event will begin with a 12:30 pm rally. A 1:30pm march will follow. For more information contact (216) 659-0473.

"We are pleased to add Ms Woodson, a distinguished member of the mayor's cabinet and a former community activist who has been with activists in the trenches when we were fighting for the welfare of women and children in Cleveland, as a speaker," said Women's March Cleveland organizer Kathy Wray Coleman.

After winning a heated nonpartisan runoff election by a landslide, Mayor Bibb, 35, took office in January of last year and is the city’s fourth Black mayor. He succeeded outgoing mayor Frank Jackson, 75, a four-term Black mayor and the city's longest serving mayor who opted against seeking a fifth term in office.

The mayor has been vocal in support of women's issues and when he was campaigning for mayor he spoke at the march that Women's March Cleveland hosted at Market Square Park in October of 2021 for reproductive rights that drew roughly 2,500 people. He announced policies to protect abortion rights and pledged that the city won't prosecute abortion-related crimes after the U.S. Supreme Court, on June 24, 2022, overturned Roe v Wade and relegated the authority to restrict or outright outlaw abortion to respective state legislatures, though abortion remains legal in Ohio for now.

Coleman said that women of Cleveland thank the mayor for supporting women as women struggle for freedom and liberty from right wing oppressors who are determined to undermine and destroy women in the state of Ohio.

"We will fight against attempts to erase decades of constitutional protections for women and girls," said Coleman on the Facebook event page , which also reveals that Cleveland is slated to host one of the largest sister marches in the country the weekend of Jan. 21.

Keynote speakers are state Sen, Nickie Antonio, state Rep Juanita Brent, Cleveland Councilman Joe Jones, activist Genevieve Mitchell, Cleveland Domestic Violence Center CEO Melissa Graves, East Cleveland School Board President Dr. Mary Rice, Ohio Physicians for Reproductive Rights representative Dr. Lauren Beene, and Red, Wine and Blue CEO Katie Paris. A transgender student and University Hts Cleveland Hts student activist will also speak, coupled with brief presentations by Black on Black Crime Inc and Stand Up 4 Abortion Rights

Women's March Cleveland has enlisted a coalition of other activist and women's rights groups of greater Cleveland  for the event, including Ohio Physicians for Reproductive Rights, Laura Cowan Foundation, Red, Wine and Blue, Black Women's PAC of Ohio, Carl Stokes Brigade, Black Women's Army, Greater Cleveland Alliance of Black School Educators, League of Women Voters East Cleveland Chapter, Journey Center for Safety and Healing ( Domestic Violence Center in Cleveland) Cuyahoga Democratic Women's Caucus, Black on Black Crime Inc, and Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights. and the most read Black digital newspaper and Black blog in Ohio and in the Midwest.

Chief and unfair Cuyahoga County Judge John Russo loses authority-Part 2 of a multi-part series on Cuyahoga County public corruption: New Ohio law on seeking possible removal of a municipal court judge in a case for bias or conflict via the filing of an affidavit of prejudice takes authority to decide from chief Cuyahoga County Presiding Judge John Russo, other chief common pleas judges in Ohio, and hands it to the chief justice of the Ohio Supreme Court, who also determines affidavits of prejudice filed against common pleas, probate, juvenile, domestic relations, and state appellate court judges....Most affidavits of prejudice are denied regardless of the merits and some judges complained of will retaliate, data show... Community activists, led by Cleveland activist Kathy Wray Coleman of the Imperial Women Coalition, lobbied the Cleveland NAACP for support and asked state legislators via state Rep Bill Patmon (D-10) of Cleveland to change the law but wanted a panel of judges and others to decide when a judge in Ohio is disqualified from hearing a case for bias or conflict....Coleman says she has since been further harassed by Chief Cuyahoga County Judge John Russo, who is White and leads a racist and sexist common pleas court fueled with corruption, malicious prosecutions, excessive criminal bonds, ineffective assistance of counsel to poor and Black defendants, and the mass incarceration of the Black community....By and, Ohio's most read digital Black newspapers....This is part 2 of a multi-part series on Cuyahoga County public corruption
