The 2022 Ohio Democratic Party Family Reunion (originally scheduled for July 15) has been postponed to Saturday, September 24 at 1:00 pm. 
 
The Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe underscores the high stakes of November’s election: abortion and reproductive rights are on the ballot. And make no mistake: this decision is the result of relentless efforts by Republican politicians like Mike DeWine and J.D. Vance to rip away the fundamental right to an abortion. Our efforts to elect Democrats up and down the ballot, from Nan Whaley to Tim Ryan on down, have never been more important. We are laser focused on this work. Ohio Democrats are committing ourselves to a summer of action. This moment is too important to pass. 

This does not affect the County Party Leaders Summit on Saturday, July 16, in Columbus. That is still on and you can click here to register or learn more. 
 
We look forward to gathering together as a family later this fall.
We will share more details soon.
