Help bring Secularism back into the Statehouse!

 

This past campaign season put a big spotlight on Ohio, but for the national offices only. Our state congress members make policy we live by and pass laws that affect our daily lives. It's time to bring the focus back to the state level. It's time to introduce ourselves, as Secularists, to these lawmakers. Recently, the 130th General Assembly was sworn in for their new session. Let's meet with them and talk about what we, as Secularists, expect of them.

February 24th & February 25th
