The Ohio Co-Conspirators in Ending Oppression (CIEO) is a subcommittee of the Statewide Anti-Oppression Committee, comprised of individuals working in various crime victim services capacities in Ohio's five regions. As beneficiaries of white privilege, our members strive to honor our responsibility to dismantle racism. It is on us, not people of Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), to actively work against oppression. This work requires humility, self-examination, and self-reflection. As we aspire to be co-conspirators and take anti-racist actions, we acknowledge that we have benefited from and normalized racism, that we are not the experts and we make mistakes. To reflect this commitment, this group has made structural changes, including a name change made official in 2021, from the previous name Aspiring White Allies.


Putting Conversations into Practice Series

Join peers within anti-violence fields across Ohio in the Putting Conversation Into Practice series as we work together to learn about and practice anti-racism. While we recognize white communities have the most work to do, all participants are welcome and facilitators will center BIPOC voices present.
