We WIN When...We Support Equity in Our Communities
June is Pride Month
During June, we’ve been able to gather together as a community, mostly all vaccinated, to celebrate Juneteenth and Pride. We’ve embraced our differences and worked at increasing our understanding. But Juneteenth and Pride have also pointed out how much work we have yet to do. READ MORE

We WIN When...We understand what it is to be a Democrat in 2022
It means coming back to the table time and time again until legislation can be passed to help the American people recover from this pandemic. It means staying focused on the work that remains to be done for the common good, while celebrating the significant work already accomplished. Democrats invest in infrastructure, meaningful employment, quality education, and the American people. We cheer for the wins and we mourn the losses. Democrats agree to disagree and listen with open minds. We support our neighbors, not only our family and friends. Democrats show up ready to lend a hand. We work together to make life easier for all of those around us and we understand what actual assistance truly is...read more

March is Women's History Month

It is chanting in the hallways demanding to be heard. It is submitting written testimony, emails and endless phone calls. It is all the times we’ve stood outside locked rooms or have been locked outside buildings, but have continued to disrupt their hidden agendas. It is the times we have delayed votes or pushed some horrific bills ultimately to their death. Most recently it is the hundreds of us across our state who have answered the call and organized to collect hundreds of thousands of signatures to protect the rights of women in Ohio....read more

We WIN When...We Lift Our Voices
We gathered in spaces large and small; we organized to sign petitions, and hand out literature, stickers and yard signs: we rallied successfully in Clark County to defeat Issue 1 in August. We were exhilarated to watch our county agree on something so vital to our Democracy. We managed to defeat the proposed amendment that would have taken away our right to make our voices heard by a simple majority: a sign that we are not all too far right or too far left; that we can meet in the middle, once again, to protect our reproductive freedom next month!
