Engage with Ohio Policymakers

As Ohio’s statewide advocacy leader for early education and health, Groundwork strives to advance policies that support quality early learning and healthy development for our youngest, most at-risk Ohioans. Our goals cannot be achieved without strong advocates like you who interact with families every day and who are best equipped to communicate the needs of our early education and healthcare systems to policymakers.
