The Matriots and our partners are taking Gov. DeWine’s advice to limit social interaction very seriously.

May 19@6 p.m. Matriots at Women of Toledo

Ohio has nearly 18,000 elected positions, but just 29% of them are held by women. That is back of the pack for US states; and the resulting quality of life measures of women in Ohio are also correspondingly low.

The Matriots PAC, created in 2017, is built to put more women in office to change the conversation at policymaking tables. The Matriots’ bold goal: 50% women in office by 2028.

Join us on May 19 to see how Ohio stacks up in the US and across the globe, then find out how The Matriots PAC is doing toward the goal. RSVP here.

May 20@4:30 p.m. Matriots and Move to PROSPER:

Join The Matriots PAC and Move to PROSPER to learn more about what really happens for spotlighting the policy needs of women when more women hold elected office in Ohio. Ohio House Rep. Kristin Boggs (18), Columbus City Councilmember Shayla Favor, Reynoldsburg City Councilmember Shanette Strickland, will talk about their work on mobility programs that create equity and access for moms and their families. Matriots Founding Member and Move to PROSPER Project Facilitator Amy Klaben will join the panel, which will be moderated by Matriots Founding Member Melissa Kass. Learn about a suite of policies and programs, including recent ordinance adoptions in Reynoldsburg and Columbus to remove discrimination in housing that these Matriots-endorsed policymakers have championed. RSVP here.
