Advocates for Ohio’s Future and our partners are launching OhioSPEAKS today. Will you get involved with the OhioSPEAKS project and submit your story today?

OhioSPEAKS is a collaborative project to collect and highlight stories of struggle and hope. The stories illustrate the impact of programs that support Ohio’s most vulnerable children, families, seniors and people with disabilities. The stories also put a human face on budget cuts and show the effect of budget cuts in our communities.

We want to hear your story today. We welcome short video clips or written statements from anyone who can speak to the impact of budget cuts or public investments in human needs programs. We want to hear from you how cuts or investments have made a difference (for better or for worse) in your life, community or business. We want to hear a variety of perspectives, including program participants, social service providers, and community, faith, or business leaders.

Will you share your story? Click here to submit your story.

The stories will be used to educate lawmakers, the media and the public about the value of human needs programs.

Click here to learn more about OhioSPEAKS, including ways to get involved, tips for what to include in your story, and what will happen with the stories.

Thanks for using your voice and taking the time to share your story. Your story is important to us!

Finally, we hope you'll help us collect stories from your community by sharing this opportunity with your contacts. Please forward this email to help involve people in your network!
