Join us for LWV Ohio’s 2020 Statehouse Day! League members and supporters from throughout the Buckeye State come together once a year to hear from experts about LWVO’s legislative priorities, learn advocacy best practices, and meet with elected officials.
This year’s legislative priorities include improving Ohio’s outdated voter registration system, implementation of voter-approved redistricting reforms, and other democracy reforms. The keynote lunch will feature a conversation between Virginia Kase (Executive Director of LWVUS) and Jen Miller (Executive Director of LWVO) about the League’s rich history and even brighter future.
Be sure to purchase your ticket while seats are still available! We look forward to seeing you there.
The LWV Ohio Team
