Stop SB5!

Petition drive needs you!

The effort to end SB5 -- the GOP attack on teachers, firefighters, police officers, nurses and other public employees -- will soon be under way.

Petition wording has been approved and is on the way from the printer. By mid-week, supporters of Ohio's middle class could start collecting signatures to put a repeal referendum on the statewide ballot.

We are organizing volunteers in U.A., and we need you. Don't like door-to-door canvassing? There will be many other ways for you to help -- for example, staffing tables at public sites or making sure completed petitions get handed in.

Please click "Stop SB5" above to register so you can receive up-to-date information on volunteering!
