Discussions between a group of anti-racist rally organizers and Village officials broke down in early August after a letter from two Council members was met with a swift rebuke from organizers.

The organizers, who have put on rallies and marches here for the last 11 weeks, have contended that Village Council was not taking anti-racist steps quickly enough in response to demands they presented last month. Village officials, meanwhile, aired concerns that organizers were marching weekly without a permit or approved routes and had not acknowledged prior Village efforts to address racism.

A full story is in the August 13 print edition of the Yellow Springs News. Below are the documents referenced or relevant to the story, including the original list of organizer demands, and proposed police reforms from Council.
