Due to your hard work, the referendum campaign and its partner organizations already have collected at least 714,137 signatures with thousands more coming in every day. We Are Ohio will deliver the signatures to the Secretary of State on Wednesday, June 29th.
We Are Ohio is inviting our unprecedented number of volunteers and supporters to participate in the “People’s Parade” on June 29th. The People’s Parade is a celebration of your hard work and your role toward overturning SB5, the unfair attack on employee rights and worker safety.
The parade will begin at COSI in Columbus and end at the Ohio Secretary of State’s Building, where We Are Ohio will be holding a press conference to announce the FINAL SIGNATURE NUMBER. Following the press conference, there will be a celebration in Columbus’ downtown park, the Columbus Commons, on High St.
Everyone will begin gathering at COSI for the parade at 10 a.m., and it will officially kick off at noon.
I will not be able to be there, but any of you who circulated or signed a petition (or just always wistfully yearn to be in any parade that passes by) are invited. I bet there will be bagpipes.
