Policy Matters Ohio fights for policies that create a more vibrant, equitable, sustainable and inclusive Ohio. Here is what we are working for right now:
Working Ohioans should be treated with dignity and paid fairly.
Our policy plan, A New Way Forward, identifies 10 pro-worker principles that would improve job quality in Ohio and recommends policies that dovetail with the growing movements to organize workplaces, raise the minimum wage, fight wage theft, secure paid sick leave and more.
- We coordinate and support Ohio’s developing network of worker centers as they as they build power for and with low-wage and immigrant workers in Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati.
The people doing well in Ohio should do right by Ohio by paying what they truly owe in taxes.
We spend our shared resources in ways that benefit all of us.
- Our research and coalition work on Care Response advocates for a health-first approach to public safety that meets the needs of people in crisis.
- Ohio's Family Budget report shares budget and policy solutions to improve the quality of life for children and families.
- As a leader in the Dignity for All Coalition, we are advancing policies that provide security and stability for all Ohioans.
