Week of April 22nd Round-Up

RSVP to Groundwork Ohio's Family Celebration at the Statehouse!

YOU'RE INVITED! Join us Wednesday, May 18th at 12:30 p.m. on the West Plaza of the Ohio Statehouse for our Family Celebration, a kid-friendly event celebrating Ohio families with young children.


At the Family Celebration, you’ll join hundreds of Ohioans from across the state to show your support and cheer on members of our Family Action Network who are coming to the Statehouse to share their stories and experiences with state legislators.


We want a huge showing of support for parents, families, and caregivers of Ohio’s youngest children. Together, we can send a clear message to our state’s policymakers that we must prioritize and elevate the voices of young children and their families!
