ProgressOhio's Fundraiser:

Its Our 9th Birthday!

BENEFITING: ProgressOhio


We've been busy.

Last week we did a press conference to help Home Health Aides who are unpaid; released research on unaccountable Charter Schools; saw investigations move forward on PO research including Horizon Charter Schools, the Ohio Senate President and top aides; and the Franklin County Auditor.

What we forgot -- our birthday!

We are going into year nine.

The second oldest ProgressNow affiliate and a key affiliate in the venerable US Action network, ProgressOhio has grown to over 400,000 of you and impacted countless laws.

We've been attacked by Governors; protested; ranted about on right-wing radio and television and we all push forward.

We've been attacked by the Tea Party and worked with the Tea Party; attacked by legislators in both parties and worked with them as well; we are a movement.

Our focus is on issues effecting Ohioans. We are called by some a think tank, some an advocacy group, some a policy group, some a consumer watchdog, and some a government watchdog -- oh and one more we're still scrating our head about when the current Governor said we must answer to God and called us nihilists.

What we are is you.

We are focused on you and progressive issues that matter to you. Whether exposing Frackgate, exposing Charter School wrongdoing, esposing profiteering off government, or protecting Ohioans like those Home Health Care workers.

We don't always win, but we always stay true (like that little JobsOhio flap that lasted 3 years and three Ohio Supreme Court decisions ;) )

So thank you to our members and activists; to our many partners; to our funders; to our Board and Staff members past and present.

Going on nine and it is quite a ride. I look forward to the journey.
