This month marks my 6 month anniversary with NARAL and I’m very proud of everything the new staff have accomplished since starting together this past January. NARAL had a successful lobby day and we have begun to engage supporters from all across the state. I believe that we have some of the most passionate supporters any organization could ask for.
Summer is finally here and I’m not only excited because it’s my first summer in Columbus, but because we have a lot of great events and festivals happening. Most of the weekends in June are booked. Click an event to volunteer!
- June 6: Dayton Pride
- June 19 & 20: Columbus Pride
- June 26-28: ComFest
- June 27: Cincinnati Pride
- June 27: Cleveland Pride
Our Northern Ohio Field Organizer, Annie, and I have put together a comprehensive volunteer training that we will be doing at various places across the state. Keep on the lookout for dates and times.
Our goals for the summer are to continue to be present in Columbus and Cleveland, but to also expand our outreach to other cities and smaller towns. We want all of our volunteers to feel engaged and to feel like they have the tools to do outreach in their own community.
I hope to see all of you out at the festivals this summer!
Central and Southern Ohio Field Organizer
Help build a pro-choice Ohio. Every day, NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio fights to protect access to the full range of reproductive health care options—including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and safe & legal abortion care. We educate the public about the real threat to women’s healthcare posed by anti-choice legislation and policies. We mobilize pro-choice Ohioans to take political action to defend reproductive rights. And we are the voice for Ohio’s abortion clinics, helping them navigate the increasingly hostile climate created by extremist groups. But we need your help. As a member organization, we rely on your financial support to fund our important legislative, educational, and grassroots activities.
