Our Work in Ohio

Ohio is a crossroads state in politics and a melting pot for faith. We bring a unique voice by combining faith leader advocacy with strategic planning to make change. Faith leaders play a critical role in shaping public policy and the public narrative.

As we work to quell the overdose crisis in Ohio, we affirm the dignity of people who use drugs — and reject any attempt to demean and marginalize our beloved neighbors.
