MAY 7th – Families from across the state will travel to their Ohio State House in Columbus to show broad and united support for children’s health. Together, we will demand action to protect the air our children breathe–both indoor and outdoor–and call for action on climate change. Please join us as we tell our state leaders that parents are paying attention to their actions. It’s time we unite for strong policies that protect the health and welfare of our families. Can’t make it? Join the virtual MAMA SUMMIT.
