At our last meeting, Hannah Servedio from Pro-Choice Ohio gave us a great presentation on the work that Pro-Choice Ohio is doing and the messaging that they are getting out the population of Ohio in educating everyone that abortion is an issue for everyone to rally around. As she mentioned, they hold monthly training sessions called Ramp Up for Repro that engage and educate participants in how to address and advocate for reproductive rights issues. Whether you are new to repro work, or have been volunteering for a long time, this training is a great if way to get more information and deepen your commitment. Their monthly 90-minute Ramp Up for Repro trainings will further acquaint you with political advocacy tactics, repro lingo, and help you find your niche in the movement. Every month, they dive into movement ecology, abortion messaging, the current landscape of abortion access, and provide concrete steps for you to take action! Please consider attending and help us to solidify our messaging for this upcoming election season!

Register for the Wednesday, August 24th (6:00 pm) Ramp Up for Repro

 

Please consider attending the fundraiser for Matthew Diemer, our Democratic Candidate for Congress, as he is hosted by Indivisible Strongsville next month!!

Matt is running for Ohio’s 7th Congressional District, which will represent us in the US Congress. The seat is being vacated by Bob Gibbs, a Republican, who has held the seat since 2011. This district has also been gerrymandered, so it is EXTREMELY imperative that we support him and his campaign to the fullest to ensure that our Democratic voices in Congress. This fundraiser is a great way to meet and connect with Matt, learn about his platform, ways you can get involved with the campaign, and make sure his run is a SUCCESS!! Please consider attending and lending your support!!
