The Increasingly Progressive State of Ohio

Ohio, I am afraid, is likely to take the place of Florida, at least until 2008. Between 2000 and 2004, whenever anyone said "Remember Florida", everyone would groan in instant remembrance of the electoral scandals in that state. Now, what will people say about Ohio?

In the national consciousness, Ohio is a place of great things that almost were, and a smaller image of the division in the nation as a whole. More locally, Ohio is a place where people are concerned about getting things done. Ohio has a strong liberal tradition of freedom, fairnesss, and hard work, right alongside the more questionable traditions of the holy rollers and other immigrants from south of the Mason Dixon Line. The fight for Ohio mirrors the fight for America.

We created this page of progressive resources for Ohio in order to promote the state's more liberal organizations and individuals. Even with all the national attention that Ohio has received, there's no way that we find all the progressive groups there on our own. We're looking for help in expanding out listings, so, if you know of any progressive candidates, information resources or organizations in Ohio that we don't have listed here, let us know so that we can consider including them in our growing index.
