Vote NO Campaign Volunteer Leader Zoom Training
Monday, May 29, 5:30-6:30 pm
Wednesday, May 31, 5:30-6:30 pm

Issue 1's 60% vote threshold to pass citizen-led constitutional amendments is an existential threat to many progressive causes in the state of Ohio.
But if we undertake a robust canvassing operation and knock on 500,000 doors ibetween now and August 8, we can turn out our Democratic base and WIN.

To get there, we need volunteer leaders to help lead the charge on a more granular level in each and every county.
If you want to play a vital role in this critical fight, please attend this training to become a volunteer leader!

Volunteer leaders will host canvasses twice a week that other volunteers can attend.
This training session will equip you with everything you need to be a effective volunteer leader.
We'll also get you queued into our support systems:
The ODP organizing staff is here to help you every step of the way and to ensure you'll be an effective leader throughout the rest of this Vote NO Campaign.

We look forward to seeing you soon on Zoom!

(You'll also find links for phone banking and canvassing)

AEP and House Bill 6: Dark Money, Corruption, and Power

FirstEnergy wasn’t the only Ohio utility company involved in the HB 6 bill and subsequent $65 million dollar scandal.
Join Common Cause Ohio for a virtual forum on the role American Electric Power (AEP) played and continues to play in Ohio’s largest corruption scandal.
Moderated by award-winning Ohio Statehouse journalist Morgan Trau, we will hear from Energy and Policy Institute’s policy researcher and writer Dave Anderson and Kathiann Kowalski, reporter for Energy News Network and Eye on Ohio, who have both closely followed AEP’s involvement. They will discuss the role of dark money, the corruption it breeds, and how the company is still benefiting from HB 6.

American Whitelash: A Changing Nation and the Cost of Progress
Wesley Lowery
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, reporter, editor, and author

Tuesday, June 6, 2023
11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Doors at 11:15 am / Lunch at 11:30 am / Forum begins at noon
The City Club of Cleveland
850 Euclid Avenue Cleveland, Ohio 44114

Many in the nation cheered the election of Barack Obama and the significance it meant for racial progress in the U.S.
But as Lowery explains in 
American Whitelash: A Changing Nation and the Cost of Progress, Obama’s election also led to increased instances of racial violence.
He draws a direct line between the rise of white power in America and the election of Donald Trump.
Using his background and skills as a journalist, Lowery analyzes the effects of white supremacy through a historical and present day lens–all while searching for a way forward.

Join us for a conversation about racial progress and white supremacy with Shaker Heights native Wesley Lowery.

The livestream will be available beginning at noon. Have questions? Tweet them at @TheCityClub or send a text to 330.541.5794.

Look Back, Look Forward:
Statewide Environmental Policy Briefing

Tuesday, June 6, 2023
Noon - 12:45 pm

Join the Ohio Environmental Council Action Fund to hear more from our experts on recent environmental wins as well as policy opportunities to secure healthy air, vibrant public lands, clean water, and a strong democracy for communities across the Buckeye State. 

Achieving a healthier environment for all Ohioans is complex and challenging work.
It takes all of us—using every tool in our toolbox and making the most of opportunities at every level of government.
We hope you’ll join on Zoom us to learn more and take action on the issues you care about most.

Teach Truth Day of Action June 10

For the past two summers, teachers haverallied across the country at historic sites to speak out against anti-history education bills and to make public their pledge to teach the truth.
The teacher-led rallies received national media attention, providing a valuable counter narrative to the oversized coverage of the well-funded anti-CRT movement.

Once again, we invite educators, students, parents, and community members to rally across the country and pledge to #TeachTruth and defend LGBTQ+ rights on June 10, 2023.
