Write to Congress
One of the biggest ways that you can make a difference in the lives of Ohio children and youth is to actively participate and contact your local legislators. Every year, the Ohio House of Representatives and the Ohio Senate vote on proposed bills that directly effect your daily living. A simple phone call or letter to your representative to let them know of your concern or to bring an issue to their attention is one of the most effective ways for Ohioans to make an impact on their future and the future of their state.
Below are links to both the Ohio House of Representatives and the Ohio Senate. If you are unfamiliar with your legislators, or how to contact them, please simply enter in your zip code to find the legislators who serve your area. Each website includes the names, addresses, phone numbers and often email addresses of the legislators from around Ohio.
"Our community has been very hard-hit by serious unmet grief support needs, so I am looking forward to doing new things to fill in the gaps in our present child-teen bereavement program by introducing Bobby's Books to local schools, churches, libraries and service organizations. My "retirement" dream is beginning!
Thanks for your assistance in making this happen!"
