Yesterday, some members of the Ohio Conference participated in a large rally in Columbus. Here is the beginning of a news report in the Columbus Dispatch:

“More than 3,000 union workers and supporters marched this morning from the Arena District to the Greater Columbus Convention Center, where Americans for Prosperity is hosting its ninth annual Defending the American Dream Summit. ‘When politicians are taking money from billionaires and letting them control our government, it’s no good for anybody,’ said Jarod Tomaino of UAW Local 1112 in Lordstown, as he stood outside the convention center, cars honking as they drove by. ‘This is to show you can’t buy the American dream. That’s what they’re trying to do.’”

Here are a few photos of the event.
