Social Justice/Public Witness events – Week of 3/2/24

Saturday 3/2

Last call for the Poor People’s Campaign rally at the Statehouse tomorrow; march to demand a political response to all those who have died because of poverty in Ohio! If interested contact Debbie Davidson or send an owl although it will need plenty of time to get to Batavia and will never leave once it gets here… LOL

Thanks go out to Lois Gish for the following gem: We Are One: Empower features the world-renowned American Spiritual Ensemble. 

Returning Citizens lifts up voices through song and stories of formerly incarcerated individuals at House of Joy on Central Parkway. 

An exhibition and lecture recital: History of the Spiritual, will be presented at Artsville in Madisonville. Tickets to this one are going fast!

I Believe will be performed at Zion Baptist Church in Avondale (suggested donation at checkout). Tickets are free, registration is encouraged. More info at

Thursday Noon

After a four-year absence, the EPA Air Nuisance Rule is being restored in Ohio. At the next Community Issues Forum on Thursday, David Altman and Justin Newman, two attorneys who work with citizens to protect the environment, will explain why this legal process is such an essential tool for eliminating air pollution in Ohio’s communities. They will urge Forum attendees to contact the EPA in support of this policy. Christ Church Cathedral will host AIR’s popular lunch and learn event; bring your own or purchase a Silverglade sandwich for $6.50 on-site.

Please feel free to forward any items of interest to Debbie Davidson and include a note to nudge me if any are time-critical so I can do a special edition if necessary.
