US Conference of Mayors releasing anti-racism plan

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — The national group of mayors is proposing a 10-point plan to end racism and discrimination in America.

The
blueprint released Thursday by the U.S. Conference of Mayors includes
speaking out against bias, reducing poverty and working to reduce
disparities between whites, blacks and Hispanics in prison sentencing.

In cities, the mayors say want to promote inclusion and tolerance and help integrate immigrants into communities.

The
organization is unveiling the plan in Alabama at Birmingham's 16th
Street Baptist Church, where a racist bombing killed four girls 50 years
ago this week.

The mayor's association is establishing the U.S.
Coalition of Cities Against Racism and Discrimination as part of the
International Coalition of Cities Against Racism.

The mayors are working with the United Nations on the plan
