Emily and Sophie, both members of the AHEAD Leadership Team, recently attended the Mobilize 88 Summit. The event’s goal was to organize and prepare progressive grassroots leadership in all 88 counties of Ohio. It was hosted by the Ohio Progressive Alliance (OPA). Emily and Sophie have written up insights from the event, reporting on:
- A session given by the Single-Payer Action Network Ohio (SPAN Ohio) that explains differences between the types of single-payer healthcare systems that exists as well as benefits of this type of system.
- Guidance on the steps a candidate needs to take in order to prepare themselves to run a good race in the current political climate
- A keynote address by former Ohio State Senator Nina Turner “that captivated, inspired, and pulled on the heartstrings of everyone in the room.”
