Hate has no place in Ohio. That’s why in the immediate aftermath of violent protests organized by the so-called alt-right movement in the summer of 2017, For Ohio’s Future helped local groups and community leaders organize peaceful demonstrations conveying that Ohioans unequivocally reject racism and violent extremism.
Here are a few ways For Ohio’s Future has helped combat violent extremism:

In the weeks following the attack in Charlottesville, For Ohio’s Future also convened groups of activists and civic leaders for a series of “Resist. Mobilize. Win.” community conversations and trainings. The discussions and trainings — which took place in communities throughout Ohio — focused on protesting for positive change, combating extremism and the alt-right, and transferring grassroots energy into electoral power for 2018.
