Your Voice Ohio: What’s Your Future Southeast Ohio?

November 21, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Your Voice Ohio brings journalists and the community together to ask: What will it take to make life better here?

The public is invited to Nelson Hall on Ohio University’s campus on November 21 from 6-8 p.m. for an open conversations about what people in Southeast Ohio communities need to improve life in this unique, picturesque area with economic challenges.

People will sit at tables as equals with journalists and leaders to discuss what their hopes are and how those might be achieved. Themes have emerged across the state, as have special needs for each community.

The questions journalists will ask residents are:

  •  What does a community look like where people are happy and live fulfilled lives?
  • What would you change about your community to move in the direction of happy and fulfilled lives?
  •  What are the assets of the community that can be applied to making change?
  • What are actions that can be taken by leaders, people and journalists to can bring about those changes?

The listening events are part of the Your Voice Ohio media project, in which journalists sit with people in their communities to better understand and represent the people in the 2020 state and national elections — before candidates come to town and define issues the way they want. This session is co-sponsored with Ohio University and the Ohio Debate Commission.

The conversations are sponsored by the WOUB Public Media and other local news outlets. Other sponsors include the Ohio Debate Commission and Ohio University.

Join the two-hour conversation, which is open to the public. Food will be served.
