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

Please subscribe to our newsletter for updates. And check back here for an updated list of “virtual community” events.

Women-Owned Businesses & Women In Office, April 22@8:30 a.m.


Join Sens. Antonio and Kunze, along with The Matriots PAC, the Central Ohio Chapter of National Association of Women Business Owners and Ohio Women’s Commission to learn how the elected women have championed this program, and what remains to be done. Matriots Founding Member Lisa Stein will moderate. RSVP here.

Columbus Board of Education and Reynoldsburg City Candidates Panel: April 29@6 p.m.:

Join The Matriots PAC and Weigh The Facts to hear from the  candidates for these Central Ohio races. RSVP here.

May 6@4:30 p.m. Matriots and South Side Early Learning:

The pandemic has once again pointed out how critical early learning and child care are for the economy and women’s ability to fully participate in it. Two-and-a-half million women quit their jobs since the pandemic began in order to care for their kids at home. While vaccination efforts have contributed to the reopening of the economy, the reality is the pandemic seems to have taken a toll on the availability of child care providers—further straining a system that was struggling with access issues before COVID-19. The Matriots PAC knows that when women hold elected office, the policy focus changes. Join Columbus City Councilmember Elizabeth Brown and Ohio House Reps. Allison Russo and Juanita Brent to talk about how they’re championing policy to reimagine how early childhood education is supported in the future. Matriots Founding Member Mary Cusick will moderate the conversation. 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.
