Please join us for a conversation about strategies to promote women's equality and enable all women-particularly women from diverse racial, ethnic, and economic backgrounds living across the state of Ohio-to thrive economically. 

We will come together to discuss, strategize, and organize around a host of policy priorities that impact the lives of women and their families. Our goal is to connect the dots on issues such as equal pay; access to abortion and reproductive health care and rights; child care; paid leave and paid sick days; and sexual harassment. We hope participants leave this discussion better positioned to work collaboratively to create impactful change that is responsive to women's diverse realities and experiences. 

Please bring your unique perspective to join this important conversation about strategies for the future.

Can We Talk? Reviving Civility in Public Discourse

Tuesday, July 10, 2018
Noon - 1:30 pm
The City Club of Cleveland
850 Euclid Avenue Cleveland, Ohio 44114

  • Mickey Edwards, Former U.S. Congressman, Oklahoma
  • Dan Glickman, Former U.S. Secretary of Agriculture; Executive Director, Congressional Program, The Aspen Institute

  • Yvette McGee Brown, Partner-in-Charge for Diversity, Inclusion and Advancement, Jones Day
One of the bedrocks of the American democracy is our commitment to free speech - the robust, open exchange of diverse ideas and perspectives. Furthermore, the creation of our two-party system was implemented to protect America from entering into another monarchy, ensuring no single mindset could dominate the American consciousness. The Founding Fathers imagined that the inherent tension between these differing ideas would ultimately make our country stronger and more resilient.

More than 200 years later, it can be argued that Americans find themselves more divided than united. Republicans and Democrats - both on the hill and in neighborhoods around the country - find themselves unable to collaborate and find common ground in efforts to address pressing issues facing our nation. The advent of technology and social media furthers those divisions, allowing each side to reach only their supporters and ignore others, oftentimes creating a stalemate. As a consequence, a 2017 Pew Research Center poll found that trust in the national government reached a historic low of 18 percent. Can we bridge this divide?

Join us for a bipartisan conversation on how we can restore civility in American politics and public discourse.

This forum is the inaugural Chief Justice Thomas J. Moyer Lecture Series event, created in collaboration with the National Institute for Civil Discourse at the University of Arizona, to provide a lasting memorial to Chief Justice Moyer's dedication to the administration of justice and public understanding of the law.

The Ohio Candidate Forum on Disability Issues is an event for Ohio Governor and U.S. Senate candidates to express their positions on disability-related issues/policy. These issues affect approximately 2 million Ohioans with disabilities, at least 13% of our state's population.

People living with disabilities face significant issues, for example the nationwide jobless rate for people with disabilities is more than double that of people without disabilities, according to the 2015 American Community Survey. The poverty rate for people with disabilities is 30.3% compared to 12.1% for those without a disability and almost 25% of students with disabilities did not complete High School.

Moderator: Mr. Alan Johnson, (Retired) Columbus Dispatch Statehouse Reporter
Keynote: John D. Kemp, Esq., Life-long advocate and co-author of ADA.

The event is FREE and open to the public, but you must register. At least 150 attendees are anticipated.
