“Our nurses, teachers, firefighters and police officers were literally locked out of the statehouse when the extreme politicians in Columbus were passing this bill,” stated Martha Cosbey, a volunteer with We Are Ohio. “I am volunteering because I feel that our community’s workers deserve a voice at the table. It’s what’s fair and it’s what will ensure our community is safe.”
Volunteers from around Wayne County came to the office opening to make calls and get involved. For anyone interested in the campaign, the field organizer, Michelle Baker, is available to answer questions for prospective volunteers at 419-508-3595 or folks can stop by between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m., Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Fridays, or on weekends by appointment.
We Are Ohio is a citizen-driven, community-based, bipartisan coalition that has come together to vote down Issue 2 and repeal SB 5, the unfair attack on employee rights and worker safety. We Are Ohio includes public and private sector workers and employees, police officers, firefighters, teachers, nurses, pastors, small business owners, Republicans and Democrats, local elected officials and business leaders, students, moms, dads, family members, and your neighbors.
