Dear Advocate:

You may be familiar with Advocates for Ohio’s Future (AOF) under its former name, the Campaign to Protect Ohio’s Future. We are a statewide coalition of health, human services, and early care & education programs working to preserve vital public services in the state budget.

Together, we represent more than 20 statewide organizations and dozens of local or regional affiliates that meet the needs of Ohio’s most vulnerable: children, seniors, people with disabilities, those without health insurance, and families in need of food and shelter.

As a coalition, we are committed to improving on what’s working in Ohio’s human service delivery system, elevating the value of these vital services, and pursuing responsible reforms. Read more about our history.

If you are reading this message, then your organization, , endorsed the Campaign to Protect Ohio's Future in years past. Won't you join us as we face one of the most challenging budget debates in history by endorsing Advocates for Ohio's Future? Simply complete and return our Organization Endorsement Form. If you have already sent us your endorsement, thank you! Read on for more ways to support our work.

Help your network to get connected

Once you return the Organization Endorsement Form, you will receive periodic communications from AOF about the budget debate and ways you can get involved. If you want to connect with us and raise your understanding now about the state budget crisis and its impact on health and human services, sign up to participate in one of two statewide webinars this Friday, December 10: 10:00-10:45 am or 3:00-3:45 pm.

In addition to organization endorsements, Advocates for Ohio's Future is looking to build a statewide network of people who care about health, human services, and early care & education. Help us reach more supporters by encouraging your board of directors, your staff, your local affiliates, your volunteers, and your consumers to sign up to receive AOF's updates and action alerts.

Advocates for Ohio's Future will help concerned Ohioans stay on top of the budget debate in the Ohio legislature as it unfolds. We will help connect people to their legislators before key votes and give them the tools they need to be effective advocates.

Don't worry -- Advocates for Ohio's Future will not overwhelm your email inbox, solicit donations from you, or share your contact information.

Ask people in your network to sign up -- and get connected!

Help us strengthen our field campaign

Legislators listen to their constituents, and now more than ever policymakers need to hear from local people who care about preserving health, human services, and early care & education programs in their district.

Advocates for Ohio's Future is seeking volunteers to help coordinate activities in legislative districts across the state. If you are interested in playing a pivotal role in our grassroots campaign by giving up to five hours a week, contact Outreach Director Will Petrik for more information. Or if you know one or more people in your network who can bring constituents together around these issues, encourage them to learn more using our "Tell a Friend" service.
