NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio 
House Party, State of Choice Briefing, and Fundraiser

Monday, March 26, 2018
6:30 - 8:30 pm
At the home of Jane and Eric Buder Shapiro
Address provided upon RSVP

  • It's most definitely NOT All Quiet on the Western Front! There's great news out of Toledo! With NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio's help and heroics, the Capital Care/ProMedica Board recently decided to grant the needed transfer agreement to Toledo's only abortion provider so that the clinic could keep its doors open. This is a hard-fought and major victory (hoopla well deserved)!
  • On the other hand, Republican legislators in Columbus are up to their usual antics, most recently with a "fetal remains bill" that would require hospitals to adhere to specific requirements for disposing of fetal remains after an abortion (but not if a woman were to miscarry, so the aim here really is, well, you know, creating yet another obstacle for women to surmount).

But there's more to cover and more to do, so please join us on the 26th. We'll hear from NARAL staff about what is going on and how we can support NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio! This is a fundraiser. In order to do the great work they do, NARAL staff need our help. If you can support NARAL Ohio's efforts--and even if you are unable to attend--you can contribute in advance online. Feel free to forward this invitation to others who might be interested.

And if you want to learn about the state of Choice in Ohio, but are unable to contribute at this time, you are still welcome--please come!

Advocacy Day banner
Freedom of Choice Ohio  will hold our annual Advocacy Day on April 10, 2018. This year, we will focus on bringing our personal stories to the Statehouse to help legislators understand how their agenda attacking reproductive healthcare hurts Ohioans and their families. Since taking office in 2011, the Kasich administration has systematically passed bill after bill limiting access to comprehensive reproductive healthcare and abortion services in our state. During Kasich's time as governor, half of Ohio's abortion clinics have closed, leaving many without access to the services they need.
The Freedom of Choice Ohio coalition is: AAUW, ACLU Ohio, NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio, New Voices for Reproductive Justice, NCJW/Columbus and Cleveland Sections, Ohio League of Women Voters, Ohio NOW, Ohio Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Ohio, Preterm, URGE, and Women Have Options / Ohio.
Tuesday, April 10, 2018
10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Including 1:00 pm rally at the Ohio Statehouse
The Columbus Athenaeum
32 N 4th St, Columbus, Ohio 43215

We will provide you with all the information you need to effectively share stories and advocate with elected officials. Following the training, participants will engage with their legislators to show the impact that the dangerous anti-abortion and reproductive health care agenda has on their constituents.

What is Ohio Democrats' Legacy?

We're writing it now, Katherine. Elections have been rigged in Ohio for decades, and this year, 2018, will finally be the year Ohioans end gerrymandering once and for all.

It's a legacy we can be proud to leave the next generation of Buckeyes. But the battle for our state isn't over -- it's just begun.

That's why I'm thrilled to announce Eric H. Holder, Jr., the 82nd Attorney General of the United States and chairman of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC), is joining us on Friday, April 13, to keynote our annual Legacy Dinner.

I really hope you can join us. Get your tickets for the 2018 Legacy Dinner and secure your seat today!


With the most outrageously gerrymandered maps in the country, Ohio will be ground zero in this fight for our democracy.

Eric Holder and the NDRC are putting campaign resources into the elections around the country that will break the partisan Republican stranglehold on map-making. Here in Ohio, that includes the crucial races for Ohio governor, auditor and secretary of state, as well as targeted seats in the state House and Senate.

We need to win them all

Join Ohio Democrats April 13 as we stand together in this critical election year and change the face of Ohio politics for generations to come:

Can't wait. I hope to see you there,

Public Square, Cleveland
Saturday, April 14, 2018

ACTIVITIES will start at 9:00 am
SPEAKERS will speak from 10:00 - 11:00 am
MARCH will start at 11:00 am

The March for Science is a celebration of our passion for science and the many ways science serves our communities and our world. The March for Science is an unprecedented global gathering of scientists and science enthusiasts joining together to acknowledge the vital role science plays in our lives and the need to respect and encourage research that gives us insight into the world.

A continuous focus on science and how scientific findings impact public policy has put a spotlight on the scientific community and their research. We accept that science, as a field of knowledge and way of thinking, is not swayed by opinions; it is nonpartisan and all-inclusive. This is the time for us to come together as one community, take a stand, and lead a new conversation.

Wear Orange, Don't Attend School. Attend Protest.

This walkout effort includes a Change.org petition with the goal of collecting 50,000 signatures, and a Twitter account - @schoolwalkoutus - that serves as an information stream. It will be at 10:00 a.m. across each time zone ("Think of it as "rolling" across the country," say its organizers.) This walkout is focused on high school students but its Twitter feed confirms that elementary and college students have been supportive, and many are also planning to walk out of class.

Hilton Cleveland Downtown
100 Lakeside Ave E, Cleveland, OH 44114

Wednesday, April 25, 2018
