Learn more about what is at stake in the “Super Committee” and the federal deficit-reduction deal for children, families, seniors and people with disabilities in Ohio. Leading statewide advocates will discuss how we work to maintain vital programs, such as SNAP, Medicaid, and Medicare.
Advocates for Ohio’s Future and our partners are also gearing up for a statewide “call-in day” on Wednesday, Sept 28 to Senator Portman’s offices in Columbus, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Toledo, and D.C. to make sure the Super Committee’s deficit-reduction plan does not increase poverty or income inequality.
You’ll hear from:
* Lisa Hamler-Fugitt, Executive Director of the Ohio Association of Second Harvest Foodbanks
Luke Russell, Associate State Director for Advocacy, AARP Ohio
Cathy Levine, Executive Director of UHCAN Ohio and Co-Chair of Ohio Consumers for Health Coverage
Deborah Nebel, Director of Public Policy, Linking Employment, Ability, and Potential
