Justice for Donovan Lewis – Statement from YWCA Columbus:

YWCA Columbus extends our sincerest condolences to Donovan Lewis’ family and loved ones, as we learn more about the tragic shooting which occurred early on Tuesday, Aug. 30, 2022. We mourn the loss of yet another young Black man in Columbus at the hands of police. 

This, along with two other officer-involved incidents that happened in recent days in our city, is continued evidence of the failure of the institution of policing and the significant, ongoing harm perpetuated against Black people and other marginalized communities at the hands of law enforcement. 

Black people deserve to live in safety and peace and in thriving communities without the looming threat of state-sanctioned violence. At YWCA Columbus, we remain committed to eliminating racism throughout public institutions and freedom from the epidemic of police violence.
