Event description

Description

We know the 2020 election is not just about the names on the ballot; it’s about the issues up for debate, up for a vote, and up for a fight. And we are TIRED of candidates and lawmakers making decisions and promises about our bodies, our lives, and our futures, without listening to our voices.

So we’re going to change that.

On February 23rd and 24th, young women-identifying, non-binary, gender nonconforming, and femme leaders - along with our allies - are convening in Columbus, Ohio for the Our Voices Ohio Summit.

And we want- no, need- YOU to join us.

Throughout Sunday of the Summit, you will learn how (or freshen up your skills) to channel your stories into lobbying power, get the rundown on state-wide policy issues from the leaders on the ground, develop your own policy goals, and then on Monday we will head to the State House to meet with your lawmakers to advance those goals.

Join Platform, Ohio State’s Multicultural Center, our coalition of amazing partners, and unstoppable young leaders to make your voice heard. Together, we will make clear that if lawmakers want our votes, they have to advance and protect our rights.

Mark your calendars, tell literally all of your friends, and RSVP here.

Let's make our power heard, Ohio!
