It has been quite a year with a pandemic, a tumultuous election, and an uncertain future. It has been most concerning to watch the process of voting and the integrity of the 2020 Decennial Census come under attack. During this time LWVGC has educated, advocated, and worked with an ever-widening group of organizations that, like us, seek to support voters in Greater Cleveland.

There is, however, one function that makes us different from other voting rights organizations: our continuing and robust efforts in voter education. Click on "READ MORE" for more information and access to the LWVGC Education Fund 2020 Annual Report.

Your annual gift is needed now more than ever. Please invest in our work, our community, and our future and consider a tax-deductible gift to the League of Women Voters of Greater Cleveland Education Fund: https://bit.ly/DONATElwvgcef

More than 20 years after the Ohio Supreme Court found Ohio’s funding system to be unconstitutional in the first of three decisions in DeRolph vs. the State of Ohio, a remedy is at hand. Thanks to bipartisan leadership by Rep. John Patterson and House Speaker Bob Cupp, and Senator Peggy Lehner and Senator Vernon Sykes, Substitute House Bill 305 and the companion legislation, Senate Bill 376, propose the Fair School Funding Plan, a genuine solution.
This blog describes the basics of this legislation and explains "Why Sub. HB 305 and Why Now?"
