  • Monthly Social and Connecting Opportunities - Columbus Inner Circle

    October 24, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
    King Avenue 5 945 King Ave, Columbus, Ohio 43212

    https://www.facebook.com/events/134771300499476

    Have you tried the traditional business networks and found they were
    ineffective? Too costly? Too salesy? Too much taking and not enough giving?
    Then maybe our monthly social is what you’re looking for.

    Let’s face it, many business networking groups are a waste of your time.
    You’re bombarded with people trying to sell you something or get your
    business – but it is rarely reciprocated or coming from a place of
    contribution.

    The goal of Columbus Inner Circle is to create something different. We want
    to attract members that are not only interested in getting referrals, but
    also want to give of themselves to encourage and help strengthen the
    businesses of the other group members. And, of course, to pass along
    quality referrals we may have.

    The key to a truly effective business network is establishing trusting
    relationships that are safe. We all know the business adage, “we do
    business with those we know, like, and trust”. That takes time and
    commitment establishing that kind of connections. It is only in that
    environment, however, that most of us feel comfortable referring our most
    coveted possession – our sphere of family, friends, and clients.

    If you are only looking for an opportunity to push your business on others,
    this is not the group for you.

    If you are interested in establishing advocates for you and your business
    AND are willing to give to others as well, then we encourage you to check
    us out.

  • National Indivisible Calendar

    House of Representatives: Vote on Budget Resolution

    October 26, 2017

    The House of Representatives is expected to vote on House Concurrent
    Resolution 71, the 2018 budget resolution. Because this bill is a
    concurrent resolution, it does not need to be signed into law by the
    president and therefore takes effect when both chambers of Congress pass
    it. The House is expected to vote on the same text the Senate passed on
    October 19; as a result, the budget will take effect as soon as the House
    passes it, and unlock the reconciliation process in the Senate for the
    Trump Tax Scam.

  • Take a Knee, Stand against Shelley Meyer

    October 28, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
    Ohio State University Horse Shoe

    https://www.facebook.com/events/138786173421414

    On October 28 at 1:00 PM activists will gather near the OSU football
    stadium (better known as the Shoe) to kneel in solidarity with Colin
    Kapernick and take a stand against Shelley Meyer's tweet.

    We will meet in a location TBD and rally before marching to the stadium
    gates. We plan to arrive just before the national anthem and take a knee.
    We will stay there for as long as possible, up to kick off when we will
    march away.

    Why are we doing this?
    On October 16, 2017 Shelley Meyer made it very clear that she does not
    support Colin Kapernick and his fight against police brutality towards POC.
    For those who don't know, Shelley is OSU football coach Urban Meyer's wife.

    When 10TV news posted a tweet about Kapernick filing grievances against the
    NFL, she responded "What-ever. He made his choices."

    It is absolutely unacceptable for the wife of a football coach to condemn
    the actions of the NFL and "take a knee." We must stand (better yet kneel)
    in solidarity with Kapernick where it needs done the most. The Shoe. The
    Meyer's need to know that we do not accept Shelley and her negative
    reaction to Kapernick, and we certainly do not accept her half hearted
    apology she posted later.

    Ohio Statehouse,Columbus, OH, USA

    https://www.facebook.com/events/137865573464964

    ***********NATIONAL CALL TO ACTION*************
    *******TIME AND DATE TO BE DETERMINED*********

    New revelations of Russia's meddling in our elections are increasing the
    odds that Donald Trump will try to block the investigation of his
    Administration's potential collusion with Russia and obstruction of
    justice.

    Experts believe that there is a good possibility that Trump will fire
    Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

    If Trump fires Mueller, we want to be ready to take the streets to protest
    within hours - to demand that Congress respond quickly and forcefully – to
    protect our democracy and justice system.

    If Trump fires Mueller prior to 2 p.m. Eastern, rallies will occur at 5
    p.m. local time that day; If Trump fires Mueller after 2 p.m. Eastern Time,
    rallies will occur at Noon local time the following day.

  • Rally to Support Payday Loan Reform

    November 1, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
    Ohio Statehouse 1 Capitol Square, Columbus, Ohio 43215

    https://www.facebook.com/events/146012622673889

    Ohio has the embarrassing distinction of having the highest payday loan
    interest rates in the nation -- 591% on average. A bi-partisan bill (HB
    123) introduced in March seeks to establish a maximum interest rate of 28%
    plus a maximum monthly fee of $20. Unfortunately, no public hearing has
    been scheduled. Every day without a hearing costs Ohioans $205,479 ($75
    million year). Join our coalition for a rally to express your support and
    demand action!

    mailto:djls2020@gmail.com .We're
    organizing an in-depth Kingian Nonviolence training in Columbus, OH,
    November 6-10, which reviews all 26 modules of the Kingian Nonviolence
    Curriculum. Can you join us?

    As context, this five-day training includes but goes far beyond the
    material covered in the One Day, Two Day, or Online Orientation to Kingian
    Nonviolence, or even Level One or Level Two Kingian certification. It
    includes principles, steps and other familiar core Kingian concepts, and
    adds larger perspectives on moving beyond "us-them" organizing toward
    building the beloved community. This includes material on intervening in
    conflict, development of groups, social action research, the four tasks of
    nonviolence leaders in local organizing, and more.

    This week is for people who are significantly interested in Kingian
    Nonviolence and have previous exposure. It is not an intro workshop. Many
    of the folks participating will already have certification as trainers --
    but that is not required, if you have previous exposure to the basics and
    sufficient desire to participate in this intensive week.

    This will be a huge boost for anyone's work as a social change maker. It is
    also part of a larger project to review and learn everything that's in the
    official Kingian curriculum developed by Bernard Lafayette, Jr., and David
    Jehnsen. Much of the Kingian curriculum is not commonly taught in the most
    available workshops. This session will help prepare next generation
    leadership to review the material as a whole in light of our own current
    training needs and to consider the next steps with the Kingian curriculum
    itself. Part of one day will be an open and optional meeting of the Kingian
    Nonviolence Coordinating Committee as they plan next steps for 2018
    programs.

    Logistics: Housing and food provided at Living Peace Church of the
    Brethren's retreat facility. Workshop is 9-5, Monday to Friday, with
    evening sessions some nights. (For those coming from afar, please travel in
    on Sunday and out on Saturday.)

    Cost: $382 fee for Lodging, Food and Materials PLUS some donation for
    facilitation team. (Logistics price will be reduced by $50/ea if the total
    group is larger than 20 people.) Organizers are working to raise money to
    support facilitation costs, and the success of those efforts is unknown.
    Please plan to make an additional donation for the facilitation team
    reflecting the value of their time in preparing this five-day workshop.

    Leadership: David Jehnsen, Kingian Nonviolence co-founder and members of
    the Kingian Nonviolence Coordinating Committee

    Are you ready for some funny with a purpose?

    'Comedy @ Ace of Cups' and Columbus Stands Up for Choice! are proud to
    present our next pro-choice and local comedy show and rally - Columbus
    Stands Up for Choice: Profamilias Puerto Rico!

    This quarter we are excited to be benefiting Profamilias Puerto Rico
    directly. A member of the International Planned Parenthood Federation,
    Profamilias operates 11 service points across the island, including 2
    permanent clinics that specifically aim to provide services to poor people.
    It also has agreements with municipal authorities to provide
    contraceptives, information, counselling and education to clients through
    private doctors, and trains medical professionals in family planning
    skills.

    Since 1989, PRO-FAMILIA has successfully maintained a telephone service
    which provides young people with information about sexuality,
    contraception, HIV and AIDS and unwanted pregnancies. The organization also
    runs educational projects for adolescents (particularly through peer
    counselling) specifically targeted at promoting awareness of ways in which
    sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV and AIDS, may be
    prevented.

    Currently, Profamilias' Clinica Iella is the only operating abortion clinic
    in the territory.

    Join us for an exciting night of homegrown Columbus comedy, nationally
    touring headline acts and advocacy for reproductive justice and women's
    health!

    Hosted by Amber Falter and Pat Deering

    Ticket Information:
    http://www.cbalaw.org

    The 14th Amendment, Part 2: The Civil Rights Act of 1964 through Obergefell
    v. Hodges

    Moderated by Prof. Peter M. Shane, The Ohio State University Moritz College
    of Law, and Frederick M. Gittes, The Gittes Law Group

    Continuing the discussion of the 14th amendment, this conversation begins
    with the “Bill of the Century”, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and ends with
    the Supreme Court of the United States’ decision rendered June 26, 2015,
    Obergefell vs. Hodges. Moderators include an academic, a civil rights
    attorney and, if we are lucky, a surprise guest!

    The purpose of the discussion is not to stoke political divides, but rather
    to lessen the rhetoric by offering historical context, legal precedent, and
    active dialogue to foster a better understanding of today’s world events.
    The Constitutional Conversations series will conclude on December 14 with a
    discussion of Civil Liberties vs. National Security: The Ongoing Challenge
    of Democracy.

  • Third Thursday Films: Selling Sickness: An Ill For Every Pill

    November 16, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    GMP Local 244

    https://www.facebook.com/events/296845247458427

    Selling Sickness is a documentary film which exposes the unhealthy
    relationship between society, medical science and the pharmaceutical
    industry.
    Drug manufacturers today fund aggressive marketing campaigns designed to
    create public awareness of previously unknown diseases, or known by less
    dramatic names. Shyness thus becomes branded as "Social Anxiety Disorder,"
    constant worry becomes "Generalized Anxiety Disorder," and premenstrual
    tension is now "Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder."
    The sale of SSRI anti-depressant medications used to treat these and other
    diseases, such as Paxil, Zoloft and Prozac, has become an annual $20
    billion market.
    Through interviews with medical consultants, advertisers, patients,
    attorneys, and others connected to the industry, this film sounds a
    cautionary note.

  • Restored Citizens & Communities for Change - Monthly Meeting

    November 20, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 5:00 pm
    St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church,386 Buttles Ave. Columbus, Ohio 43215

    www.rcc4c. org

    Meetings are held the 3rd Monday of the month from 5:00pm - 7:00pm at St.
    Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, located at 386 Buttles Ave. in Columbus
    (just west of Goodale Park).

    About & Mission:

    RCC4C is an alliance of restored citizens and advocates who are working
    together to affect changes in our criminal justice system. We believe in a
    society where people are given second chances and the opportunity for
    redemption.

    Unfortunately, our present criminal justice system uses perpetuating
    punishment and collateral sanctions to create an underclass among us. The
    formerly incarcerated must have the ability to be rehabilitated and return
    to their families and the community with the tools necessary to rebuild and
    restructure their lives.

    Indeed, social justice demands that the criminal justice system be
    reevaluated, that barriers to employment, housing and other critical
    services be removed, and that increased resources—pre and post release—be
    used to assist individuals to restore their lives.

    Those closest to the problems have insights about these issues and their
    voices must be heard as solutions are crafted. Restored citizens’
    perspectives and those whose lives have been impacted by the criminal
    justice system provide a different lens for community members and decision
    makers to think about criminal justice issues. This shift in thinking is
    necessary to achieve broad, meaningful, humane and lasting criminal justice
    reform.

    Advocacy Priorities:

    * Improve the support systems for those who are re-entering society
    from incarceration - It is estimated that 95% of prisoners will be
    released back into the community. These individuals and receiving
    communities would be better served if those who are returning have
    reliable access to housing, mental health care, recovery programs,
    and sustainable employment that will keep them out of poverty. This
    will help to reduce recidivism, reduce violence, and heal and
    stabilize families.
    * Promote humane treatment and restorative measures for those currently
    incarcerated – A majority of those entering our jails and prisons
    suffer with mental illness and/or addiction. These individuals need
    access to effective treatment. In 2015, Ohio prisons held 10 times
    the amount of mentally ill than mental health institutions in our
    state. [v] Furthermore, 80% of prisoners in Ohio have not completed
    high school and lack critical skills needed to maintain gainful
    employment, which is critical to the stability of the family. [vi]
    Restoration and rehabilitation needs to be central to the treatment
    of those currently incarcerated.
    * Lower the population in our county jails and state prisons – Our
    Jails and prisons are costly not only to individuals and families who
    are directly impacted by incarceration, but also to the taxpayers in
    Ohio. Since 1980 Ohio’s prison population has more than tripled. 1 in
    4 state employees work in corrections. [vii] There are many areas in
    need of reform to help reduce the numbers of people incarcerated,
    including how we police our communities, creating more alternatives
    to incarceration, sentencing reform, and changing policies like
    mandatory minimums which limit judicial discretion.
    * Address policies and practices which serve as the foundation for
    unequal representation of black males, people of color, and the
    economically disadvantaged within the criminal justice system- The
    majority of individuals incarcerated are already marginalized in our
    society. Many policies and procedures used in our criminal justice
    system further target and disenfranchise these populations,
    increasing opportunity and wealth disparities in our communities.
    Issues like high costs for attorneys, court fees and bail also place
    many at a disadvantage maneuvering the criminal justice system.
