CENTRAL OHIO: Your Rights & Risks under New Ohio Protest Laws

Protesting pipelines, fracking wells, power plants, and other polluting and dangerous "critical infrastructure sites" just got a lot harder now that Ohio SB 33 is law. What does this mean for you if you engage in public witness events? What are the new rules about liability for organizations, non-profits, churches, grassroots groups? How are the four new bills recently proposed in the Ohio Senate and House (SB 16, SB 41, HB 109, HB 22) designed to make it even more complicated to engage in public witness in the streets, sidewalks and at the Statehouse?

Though the focus will be on Ohio, similar bills are making their way through state houses across the country.

Guest Speakers:

* Tadd Pinkston, Pinkston Law and member of the Board of the Unitarian Universalist Justice Ohio

* Rev Joan VanBecelaere – Executive Director of Justice Ohio
