Bring Back Awesome – On Saturday, August 20, we’ll be standing up in Columbus for good jobs and strong communities. Join a coalition of community, labor, civil rights, and environmental groups (plus Grand Funk Railroad, Nikki Giovanni, Over the Rhine and the Ohio Players) at the Ohio State Fairgrounds for the day-long Stand Up For Ohio Festival.
