Global Cleveland's candidate forums will be an apolitical dialogue to raise awareness and build understanding between Cleveland's diverse international community and the candidates running for council in the city's 17 wards and for mayor. Every filed candidate has been invited to participate and sent a list of questions that address three basic categories: Cleveland's cultural and ethnic diversity, immigration's contributions to Cleveland's economic growth, and immigration's transformative effect on Cleveland.

 
 



Fair Districts seeks to demonstrate broad public support as a means of holding mapmakers accountable to the letter and spirit of the 2015 & 2018 ballot initiatives. Public input will be essential to the redistricting process. The Ohio Redistricting Commission and the Ohio General Assembly are required to hold hearings before passing new maps.
Join us on Tuesday, August 3 at 7:00 pm for this online webinar/workshop, which aims to empower and prepare Fair Districts supporters across Ohio to host in-district meetings with lawmakers and/or testify at redistricting hearings.
 



Join Safer Heights and the four Cleveland Heights mayoral candidates for a virtual forum on Thursday, August 5th, at 6:30 pm.
