NW Ohio Bus to the People’s Climate March

Per the Transition Bluffton event description:

“Join the People’s Climate Movement this April 29th in Washington, D.C. and across the country to stand up for our communities and climate.

“Throughout the first 100 days in office, the People’s Climate Movement is organizing a country-wide arc of action, culminating on April 29th in Washington DC in a powerful mobilization to unite all of our movements. To change everything, we need everyone.

“Your bus ticket does not include food or a metro card. BYOB (bring your own breakfast). We will do a non-violence training before we depart from Bluffton University. More information about this will come by email. This bus from Buckeye Charters is not able to make any additional pick-up stops along the way. Financial aid may be available, depending on donations. We aren’t accepting donations of checks or cash, but we appreciate your generosity online.

Events · Town Hall

Public invited for town hall with Representative Jim Jordan

Members of the public are invited to attend a town hall meeting featuring U.S. Congressional Representative Jim Jordan. The event will be held from 6:00-8:00 p.m. on April 24 in the South Hall of the Veterans Memorial Civic and Convention Center in Lima. The town hall is sponsored by Allen and Hardin for Election Action and Democracy (AHEAD), in partnership with other groups in Representative Jordan’s district.

Jim Jordan (R-Urbana) has represented Ohio’s Fourth Congressional District in the US House of Representatives since 2007 and is a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus.

This event is a rare opportunity for members of the general public to ask questions of Congressman Jordan and raise concerns. The town hall will feature pre-selected questions from the community followed by a Q&A with the audience. AHEAD is accepting questions for the first portion by email (ahead.oh@gmail.com).

All people committed to respectful dialogue are welcome. Organizers ask that people not bring signs that might block other participants from seeing the stage. Attendees will receive “Agree/Disagree” signs which they can use to show their opinion of statements.

AHEAD is a citizen advocacy group composed of Allen and Hardin County residents committed to nonviolent action for democracy. For more about AHEAD and the event, see https://www.facebook.com/aheadoh/.
