Tuesday, June 20
The Ohio Organizing Collaborative (OOC) https://www.ohorganizing.org is a grassroots organization that unites community organizing groups, student associations, and faith organizations with labor unions and policy institutes throughout Ohio. At the state and local levels, OOC's priorities are centered around economic justice, criminal justice reform, and structural democracy reform -- expanding voting rights. Two of OOC's mottos are "Democracy is a 365-day endeavor" and "Building a multiracial, people-powered Ohio."
Please join the Ohio State Team and our speaker Molly Shack, co-executive director of OOC, for a discussion of our common goals and interests: priorities at the state and local level in Ohio, engaging and
motivating voters, and especially getting a strong turnout for a NO vote in the August special election.
Join the Ohio team on Tuesday, June 20, at 1 pm EDT/7 pm CEST for this important event with Molly Shack, Co-Executive Director of the Ohio Organizing Collaborative (OOC).
