The premier grassroots mobilizing and organizing team in the Midwest
Since beginning door-to-door field canvassing in 1979, Ohio Citizen Action has made more than 11 million front porch visits in Ohio.
Sending enthusiastic, professional organizers into neighborhoods makes it easy for busy people to protect their own health, rights and interests by preventing abuses of government and corporate power.
We use a strength-in-numbers strategy, focusing the political and consumer power of Ohio families on the problems they care about. We boil down complex issues into everyday language, put them into context, answer people’s questions and motivate people to help.
In addition to the field canvassers, phone canvassers follow up on our door visits, spending more time with people and giving them new opportunities to make a difference. We also update our website daily, providing information, resources and opportunities for digital activism.
