  • YWCA Dayton: 21-Day Racial Equity & Social Justice Challenge

    May 17, 2019 @ 9:00 am - May 25, 2019 @ 9:00 pm
    Wherever you are!

    This Challenge asks participants to make daily time and space to build more effective social justice habits -- particularly those dealing with issues of race, power, privilege, and leadership -- for 21 days. 

    Every business day between April 29 and May 24, participants receive prompts via email that walk them through different racial and social justice exercises, from taking a quiz to listening to a podcast to reading a poem to journaling. 

    The 21-Day Challenge helps to: 
    Spark dialogue, empathy, and understanding by exploring how racial inequity and social injustice impact our community; 
    Help people grow holistically in understanding and acknowledging their own biases and help them identify ways to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination; 
    Reinforce the YWCA Dayton mission intersection between race, class, and gender. 

    The Challenge coincides with #StandAgainstRacism, the signature racial justice campaign of YWCA USA, and concludes with “An Afternoon of Love, Unity, Peace, and Inclusion.” This free community event – 1-3 p.m. on May 25 at McIntosh Park -- is hosted by the Dayton Unit NAACP and features YWCA Dayton as a coalition partner.

    This challenge was originally developed by Dr. Eddie Moore Jr. and Debby Irving and has been adapted by many organizations across the country. We want to thank YWCA Greater Cleveland for inspiring us to launch this challenge. They, in turn, were inspired by Food Solutions New England — they were the first to adapt an exercise from Dr. Moore and Irving’s book into the interactive 21-Day Racial Equity Challenge, which they launched in 2014. They are now entering their fifth year of coordinating the Challenge, with more than 3,000 participants.

  • YWCA Dayton: Civic minded discussion and celebration of diversity!

    May 25, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
    DK Effect, 1600 E 3rd St, Dayton, OH 45403, USA

    As a way to protest this disgusting rally, on May 25th we would like to invite you all to enjoy drink and food specials at DK Effect. We should have Gionino's Pizzeria open by then. 

    Instead of going downtown and watching this lame rally, we should meet up and discuss the virtues of free speech, the benefits of openness and inclusion, and other ideals that actually make our society so great. 

    It was Justice Brandeis who created the counter speech doctrine, which states that the proper response to negative speech is to counter it with positive expression!!! 

    The best way to combat this type of rally is not to protest at their rally. Rather, it’s to meet and discuss the ideals that allow our society to grow and become better, the very ideals that this group specifically rejects. 

    To those what are interested, I look forward to seeing you at DK Effect as opposed to protesting at their rally. My lawyer brain has a lot to say on this topic. Far too much to say in a Facebook post! 

    We will have discounts on draft beer, free pinball from noon - 5, and food specials!

    1301 Jefferson Ave, Toledo, OH 43604, USA

    This is an informational meeting as well as a volunteer opportunity.

    We are making cold/hot packs for local patients with the proceeds going to the Aggie fund, Toledo's abortion fund. We will also be discussing current legislation under the DeWine administration that will limit reproductive care.  

    Please bring a buddy and bags of rice! The bags you get at dollar tree can make several packs. NO BEANS PLEASE, RICE ONLY. Kristen will provide all of the fabric for the packs and a sewing machine for the stitching. If you have any fabric scissors or rotary cutter you can bring that will also be helpful.

    We would like to follow in the footsteps of a community organization we love, Periods Toledo, and make reusable pads to donate to local shelters. We are in need of another sewing machine in order to do this! Please let Kristen know if you can bring one.  

    Join us to help make a difference in our community and meet some other cool folks in the process. If you can't make it until after 5 that is not a problem, join us when you're able as we'll have many packs to sew!

    Female as F*** is back! One of our most popular shows returns for a second night of all-female comedy and storytelling. Whether you saw this show in prior years or missed it entirely, you’ll enjoy comedic performances by these fantastic females – some returning and some joining us for the first time – all with hilarious tales to tell.

    We love our friends at Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio and everything they do for our community. That's why we've decided to donate proceeds from ticket sales to help their mission. We will also have a 50/50 raffle and donation bucket at the event to help raise additional funds. If you are unable to attend and would like to make a donation, please visit www.supportppgoh.org

    About Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio:

  • Planned Parenthood Advocates of Ohio: Talking to the Media workshop

    May 29, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
    1301 Jefferson Ave, Toledo, OH 43604, USA

    Fake news? Not a chance! Join Planned Parenthood Advocates of Ohio for a workshop on how to talk to the media! 

    While the media is often perceived to be aggressive in current times, they are actually one of the best tools you can have in your activist toolbelt! You can never predict when you will be approached by the media for your hot take but you can decide how prepared you will be. For the workshop, we will be joined by Sarah Inskeep, the communications and digital manager for Planned Parenthood Advocates of Ohio. 

    With Governor DeWine signing the 6 week abortion ban, it is crucial for every day Ohioans' voices to be lifted onto higher platforms. The government has chosen not to listen to patients in Ohio, but with preparation and knowing how to get your voice out, we cannot be ignored. 

    Please contact Kristen for any questions or accommodations at 614-530-6997 or kristen.robideaux@ppao.org .

  • Equality Ohio: BQIC Columbus Community Pride and Stonewall Columbus Pride (Part II) - Volunteer With Equality Ohio

    June 15, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 10:00 pm

    In the state of Ohio, there are over 20 Prides.

    Over 20 different opportunities to reflect on and celebrate LGBTQ history. Over 20 different opportunities to honor how far we’ve come — but also how much further we still need to go.

    Through each of these Prides, we create a sense of belonging, solidarity, and safety. We create community.

    Over 20 Prides in Ohio and we’ll be at every single one. We’d love to celebrate with you this summer. If you can, please volunteer with Equality Ohio.

  • Cleveland Jobs with Justice: ICE Interfaith Vigil

    June 20, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 4:45 pm
    ICE Office, 925 Keynote Circle, Brooklyn Heights, Ohio 44131

    A group of clergy—Jewish, Islamic, Christian, other-- and others concerned for immigrants in our community are organizing weekly interfaith prayer vigils at the Immigration, Customs & Enforcement (ICE) office. This is a step of prophetic faith witness, and we are fortunate to find many neighbors in this city who are trusted partners in this work and share our belief that faithfulness requires prophetic action in situations of where abuse of power and great suffering exist. Please join us each Thursday if you are able.
