CUYAHOGA: Braver Angels: Our Rights Eroding? Responsibilities to Renew?

Join us on September 20th to discuss the importance of our American rights. What rights do you feel are eroding? What rights do you feel should be strengthened?

Meeting format will be small group discussions allowing you to share your thoughts with fellow Braver Angels from both sides of the aisle.

This meeting will be the first in a 3-part series as we delve further into our rights as American citizens. Attendance at all meetings is not required to participate. Each meeting will bring its own nuance, making it easy to join in on the discussion if you are unable to attend all sessions. Come when you can! For planning purposes, here are the dates for meetings #2 and #3:

October 18th Deep dive into the rights (1/Blue, 1/Red) that were identified on 9/20

MEDINA: MCFAN Meeting with D.J. Swearingen and Aaron Harrison

Please join us at our next MCFAN meeting on Saturday, September 9th at 9:00am at the Thirsty Cowboy. We will be welcoming two guest speakers, State Representative D.J. Swearingen and Medina County Commissioner Aaron Harrison.

Representative Swearingen is currently serving his second term in the Ohio House of Representatives for the 89th House District. This encompasses eastern Ottawa County, western Erie County, and most of Huron County. Representative Swearingen will be discussing his endorsement of President Trump, how he is going after Google, his involvement in the TikTok Bill, and the conservative agenda that the legislature will take up when they return from their summer break. For more information about State Representative D.J. Swearingen, go to:

Commissioner Harrison will be filling us in on the extremist agenda of the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency (NOACA). As you may already know, NOACA has been conducting Community Engagement Sessions for their Climate Action Plan. The stated goal of these meetings is to gather public feedback on climate change mitigation strategies so NOACA can draft a final version of their plan by October of this year. Local environmental organizations with openly stated goals of “dismantling Capitalism” have gathered at these meetings to express support for NOACA’s plan of a 63.3% reduction of Greenhouse Gases by 2030 and NetZero by 2050. Commissioner Harrison will explain why it is imperative that people speak up now and push back against NOACA’s harmful agenda before it’s too late.

Medina County is slated for these 2 NOACA meetings.
