Fighting for an Ohio that works for everyone.


Tell the Ohio state school board to fire Richard Ross

We Need Leaders

Please tell the state school board to fire Ross and bring in the type of education leader Ohio deserves.

For too long, state school superintendent Richard Ross has hurt our kids and wasted our money by covering up for failing charter schools. It’s time for the Ohio State Board of Education to fire Richard Ross as Ohio’s Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Stop the Threat to Women’s Health

There are certain choices that should be made between a woman and her doctor. Unfortunately, Ohio politicians are taking away health care options for women. That’s why ProgressOhio is teaming up with a doctor to send a message to our politicians to trust women. We need you to get involved

“NAFTA on Steroids”


The Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement — a trade deal being negotiated between the US and dozens of other countries — is the fossil fuel industry’s latest tool to shut down climate action, and today begins a huge fight to stop it.

The TPP would give foreign fossil fuel corporations the right to sue city, state and national governments if climate action hurts their profits. It’s an enormous corporate power grab, at the expense of our democracy and our climate.

Legislation that would allow the TPP to pass, called Fast Track, faces a close vote in Congress — if enough Members of Congress come out against this plan in the next few weeks, it stops it in its tracks.

Help Stop TPP!
