DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The Dayton unit of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is holding a press conference Monday evening to discuss the Photo Enforcement Camera Ballot Initiative.
The Dayton NAACP wants to shut down the city’s red light cameras. The group says the cameras disproportionately target the poor.
According to Dayton NAACP President Derrick Foward, one part of the Dayton community is disproportionately affected.
“These cameras are only in two of the three poorest communities in Montgomery County,” Foward said.
The conference will be held at the Dayton Boys Preparatory Academy, located at 1923 West Third Street.
