About this event

Pint Size Protesters is teaming up with State Rep. Mary Lightbody (D-Westerville) to hold a family-friendly half-day of learning and action with our state elected officials. We will gather safely in-person at the Riffe Center and then proceed to the Ohio Statehouse. The morning will include a brief program and an opportunity for kids to talk with state representatives from across Franklin County, followed by a casual lunch for PSP families. We hope you can join us!
