OAESV Advocacy Day 2021 – Embrace Your Voice, Tell Your Story
Since 2013, OAESV’s Annual Advocacy Day to End Sexual Violence has provided advocates, survivors, and interested members of the public with the opportunity to express the importance of sexual violence advocacy and prevention to members of the Ohio Legislature. After the main event, the one-on-one meetings with lawmakers provide invaluable opportunities for rape crisis professionals to share insight on pending legislation and make informed requests for funding increases. It is simply the best opportunity to have our voices heard in the place where laws are made!
When registering for workshops:
- Please Select the Main Advocacy Day event to attend the Virtual Event – 9AM-11AM
- Legislative Meetings: if you are available to join a Legislative Meeting, please select all time slots available for you. OAESV staff will follow-up with you on details on the time slot confirmed for you, how to join your legislative meeting, help you prepare, and introduce your meeting members. This is the best way to have our voices heard and we can’t wait to work alongside you to create important policy and culture shifts.
