This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:

Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my website. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)

…or something like this:

The XYZ Doohickey Company was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality doohickeys to the public ever since. Located in Gotham City, XYZ employs over 2,000 people and does all kinds of awesome things for the Gotham community.

Myaamiaki:  Today and Yesterday

The Miami Tribe of Oklahoma is a vibrant sovereign nation based in Northeast Oklahoma, but with ongoing ties to their pre-removal homelands in what are today the states of Kansas, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio. In this presentation George Ironstrack will give an overview of the Miami Tribe today and summarize the history of his community with an eye to creating an understanding of the challenges facing Myaamiaki ‘Miami Indians.’ Historically, Myaamia leaders sought to protect their nation by being good neighbors with the non-Indigenous communities that settled near them. The Myaamia community works to continue this practice today through education.

Removing the Redline:  What is Redlining, and Why Does it Matter Today?

Kristina Scott, CEO of Learn to Earn Dayton, works at the intersection of policy and practice to break down barriers to prosperity. She joined Learn to Earn Dayton in September 2020. She will address why are communities like Dayton so often racially segregated? How did our neighborhoods form the way they did? And how does this affect employment, education, policing, health care, and other aspects of life?  Learn to Earn Dayton, the Dayton Metro Library, and a host of community partners are hosting Undesign the Redline, a visually compelling exhibit tracing how discriminatory New Deal housing policies impact social issues we face today. We invite you to learn the history, make the connections and understand the stories. You will be able to place yourself on the map and reflect on whether it benefitted or harmed you. You will also discover actionable opportunities to make a difference in creating a more equitable future.

The State of Bail Reform

Presently, the United States incarcerates more of its citizens than any other country in the world. Every evening, 500,000 people languish in jail convicted of precisely nothing and presumed innocent as they await trial. Greatly contributing to this mass incarceration is the use of cash or money bail.  Individuals presumed innocent stay in jail because they cannot afford to purchase their pretrial freedom. The Columbus Dispatch has likened our bail system to debtor’s jail. Judge Steven Dankof has begun a cashless bail program for pretrial defendants assigned to his docket for nonviolent low-level felonies. Judge Dankof has been on the forefront of the statewide effort toward bail reform, which has resulted in new Ohio Supreme Court rules expanding bail reform. Judge Dankof will talk about the problems the courts still face and his innovative approaches to finding solutions. Judge Dankof was appointed to the Montgomery County Common Pleas Court General Division in 2010 and was re-elected in 2014 and again in 2020.
