Ohio Mass Poor People’s and Low-Wage Workers’ Statehouse Assembly and to the Polls

Start: Saturday, March 02, 202410:00 AM

Join the Ohio Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival on March 2, 2024 at 10:00 AM as we  march and rally bringing the demands of poor and low-wealth people for living wages, healthcare, housing, education, environmental justice, and voting rights directly to our lawmakers.

We cannot slide quietly into the dark! That’s why Ohio is joining states across the nation who will be holding simultaneous assemblies and marches at their state capitals. We are going to raise our voices and to make our votes demands. We are going to Columbus to deliver a moral indictment of the cynical priorities and immoral policies of the leadership of the Ohio Legislature. Our state capitals are not just symbolic; they are the policy hubs whose decisions directly impact people facing systemic poverty and the interlocking injustices. Join with us, poor people, clergy and faith leaders, and advocates in building an action that will send a message to the legislators responsible for the unrelenting policy violence against the 3,784,000 poor and low-income people in our state that we won’t be silent anymore.

10:00 AM Gathering at Trinity Episcopal Church, 125 East Broad; then march to Ohio Statehouse

11:00 AM Mass Assembly at Ohio Statehouse: 1 Capitol Square, Columbus, OH 43215

Across the nation, poor people make up 30% of the electorate, here in Ohio, there are 3,784,000 and low-income eligible voters. This is the power of the sleeping giant! Organizing and mobilizing poor and low-income voters means that we can build the Ohio we believe in! It’s time for us to take back the mic from those who want to talk about everything else but the death-sentence of poverty in these yet to be United States. That’s why we are mobilizing around the issues that impact our communities most. If you believe in freedom, if you believe in living wages, healthcare, voting rights and stopping voter suppression, equal rights for all, worker and labor rights, environmental justice, access to housing, fully-funded public education, abolishing poverty, and the unity of love not the division of hate, join us on March 2nd, 2024 at 10 AM in Columbus!  

We will be gathering at Trinity Episcopal Church at 125 E. Broad Street, at 10 AM.

We will march at 10:15 AM

We will rally on the westside of the Ohio Statehouse at 11 AM.

Join us Saturday, March 2, 2024!
