Call to Action: Show up to Ensure Ohio Invests in Asian/AAPI Communities

May 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

OPAWL Budget Advocacy Toolkit

Call to Action: Show up to Ensure Ohio Invests in AAPI Communities

We need your help to keep pushing forward the solutions uplifted in OPAWL’s recent statewide letter campaign to Governor DeWine and state lawmakers! Words are important, but words are not enough. We need concrete action, policies, and resources to support AAPI communities and prevent a tragedy like Atlanta and Indianapolis from happening here in Ohio.

Join OPAWL to learn about our recent advocacy work and how you can help put pressure on the Senate Finance Committee to demand they prioritize AAPI communities during the ongoing state budget process. The Ohio budget is a moral document. It demonstrates our priorities as a state. Over 350,000 of our fellow Ohioans are Asian, Asian American, or Pacific Islander, and we need your continued support to put pressure on Chair Matt Dolan and the Senate Finance Committee to finally include us in the state budget and invest in our safety, recovery and resilience!

Use our budget advocacy toolkit for step-by-step instructions on how to support these collective efforts through making phone calls, submitting testimony, and sharing on social media.

We will also have 2 identical community meetings for OPAWL members, supporters, and partners to learn about important updates and take action:

  • Tuesday, May 18th, 6:30-7:30pm EST (with special guest Sen. Tina Maharath)
  • Wednesday, May 19th, 12:00-1:00pm EST

If you have any questions, please contact jona.hilario@opawl.org.
