6/13 Forum featuring the NEOYBD and Move to Amend Ohio!

Thursday, June 6th, 2013

Join us next Thursday, June 13th at 7:00pm, to get active and insure our values triumph in the upcoming 2013 & 2014 elections!

In 2012, we saw the negative effects of unlimited, non-transparent corporate funding in elections. At the same time, we fought nationwide attempts to limit fair access for all to the voting booth – a right countless Americans have fought and died to protect.

Now, we can do something about it.

The Cleveland Heights Democrats and the Northeast Ohio Chapter of the Young Black Democrats are jointly sponsoring this meeting to get us active and engaged. Join us at the Cleveland Heights Community Center (1 Monticello Blvd) next Thursday, June 13 at 7:00 PM.

Come see and hear Greg Coleridge, Coordinator of Move to Amend Ohio, and Mario Clopton, President of the Northeast Ohio Chapter of the Young Black Democrats.

Join the fight against unlimited corporate money in elections and learn how to effectively register voters who support our values!
