Alternatives to Despair in Post-Roe Ohio

Via Zoom and In-Person at the Rocky River Library

This meeting is intended to educate and inform the group about life, activism, and options in post-Roe Ohio. Our speakers are well-versed in how to understand and combat the radical voices in the Federal government and Ohio Statehouse that are actively working to strip the rights and freedoms away from women, especially, and all Americans alike. Their insight will serve to help us analyze how exactly these draconian measures will manifest in our daily lives, how they restrict the basic freedoms we have come to rely on, and what we can do to fight back.

FEATURED SPEAKERS

An enthusiastic volunteer herself, Hannah is a lead escort with a Northeast Ohio abortion clinic, a CASA/GAL with Summit County Juvenile Court and an active participant in a variety of additional causes she feels passionately about. She will speak to us about how to navigate the post-Roe environment in Ohio and the US, how we can help those affected by the ruling, how to message our cause effectively, and engage our electorate and looks forward to taking questions from the group.
