Advocates Call on Ohio US Senate Candidates to Prioritize Women & Working Family Issues in Debates


Ahead of the Ohio US Senate debates between Rob Portman and Ted Strickland, advocates released a sign-on letter of 15 organizations – and growing – representing tens of thousands of Ohioans urging the candidates to discuss where they stand on issues impacting women and working families during the debates.  The letter was presented by advocates during the “Raising the Stakes” for Ohio Women and Working Families” Event hosted by Innovation Ohio, NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio, Ohio AFL-CIO, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Ohio, ProgressOhio, SEIU District 1199, Stand Up For Ohio, The Center For American Progress, and The Ohio Democratic Party. The full letter can be read here.  The organizations will deliver the letter to the campaign offices of the candidates ahead of the upcoming three debates, as well as sending copies to the news stations hosting the debates in Youngstown, Columbus, and Cleveland.  To add you organization’s name to the letter, please contact Erin Ryan with Innovation Ohio at
