Columbus Community Conversation: you are invited

I am emailing to invite you to the Columbus area Community Conversation related to the state budget and its potential impacts on safety net services and other health and human services. If you do plan on attending, please RSVP at the link at the bottom. I hope to see you there!

The following is the information about the event in Columbus this Monday:

Advocates for Ohio’s Future is partnering with the Ohio Association of Second Harvest Foodbanks, the Mid-Ohio Foodbank, and Ohio Job & Family Services Director’s Association for a Community Conversation on Monday, January 31st at 10:00 am at the

.

We are bringing together state legislators, social service providers, community stakeholders, and struggling Ohioans who have been deeply affected by the state of Ohio’s economy and rely in greater numbers on the strength of Ohio’s safety net services.

The Mid-Ohio Foodbank serves Belmont, Coshocton, Delaware, Fairfield, Fayette, Franklin, Guernsey, Harrison, Jefferson, Knox, Licking, Madison, Marion, Monroe, Morrow, Muskingum, Noble, Pickaway, Ross and Union counties.
Ohio needs to hear from you!

Ohio’s projected $8 billion dollar structural deficit will leave state legislators with little choice but to make some very tough decisions in the coming months; decisions that will directly impact your community, services available and the rising number of people standing in food lines in your community.

At this Community Conversation you can:

  • Hear recent regional reports on the state of Ohio’s struggling economy and what this means for local social services.
  • Share the importance of social services in your community, speak to changes you’ve seen in need and share your vision for Ohio’s future.
  • Learn how you can get involved in the larger conversation about Ohio’s future and how to have an impact in the critical months ahead.

The Community Conversation will include a panel of elected officials, representatives from social service providers, and Ohioans who participate in safety net programs. Opportunities to record a podcast about what is happening in your community will be available before and after the event.

Share your vision for Ohio’s future! Join the conversation!
Please RSVP here or call (614) 221-4336, ext. 239 and forward this opportunity to everyone you know who may be interested.
