Teach-in Videos

Is there a way to post video of the teach-ins? Not livestream, but just embedded video?

I have a video camera I can loan out.

Hi Everyone!

Hi Everyone!

I spoke last week at one of the teach-ins. Please encourage everyone you know in Ohio to vote NO on ISSUE 2: to enact SB5 (a bill that severely limits collective bargaining rights and strips public employees of other needs). If it can happen in Ohio, it can happen anywhere.

Reach out to those you know and tell them polls are open TOMORROW from 6:30am to 7:30pm. NO on 2!
