Common Cause Ohio for Fair Districts
From our friends at Ohio Poor People’s Campaign:
Our fight for fair congressional districts begins next Tuesday, September 21, when we all gather in Columbus for Fair Maps Day (register HERE). This is an opportunity to show official mapmakers and the world that we are not looking away or standing down: we will continue this fight and ramp up our opposition to gerrymandering wherever it raises its lizard head.
|STUDENT GROUP ON RACE RELATIONS – a Shaker Heights High School extra-curriculum group – introduces Community Spaces
SGORR Community Spaces are intended to be a place for individuals to process their thoughts on racism, build a support network, become educated, and most importantly strategize on actionable steps in building an anti-racist community. It is our goal to provide spaces in various neighborhoods and communities to broaden our reach. Each space will consist of 10 – 15 individuals.
These engaging spaces will launch the week of June 29th either at someone’s home, a neutral location or virtually. SGORR Community Spaces will be publicly promoted. All are welcome to sign up, regardless of race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical ability, religion, nationality or socioeconomic status.
If you are interested in engaging in SGORR Community Spaces, please fill out the link below. We are excited to work with our community to continue to build an anti – racist community! For any questions, comments or concerns please email Tiara Sargeant, SGORR Advisor (firstname.lastname@example.org)
