Could you identify a victim of human trafficking in a crowd? In your doctor’s office? In your neighborhood? In a hotel or airport? Human sex and labor trafficking affects minors and adults, people of all races, genders, and countries of origin. This modern form of slavery is a multi-billion-dollar-a-year underground industry that affects the most vulnerable members of our communities—and it happens in our neighborhoods and backyards every day.
Join us for an important training and conversation with Angella McMahan, RN, a sexual assault nurse examiner from UH Rainbow Babies & Children'sHospital. You’ll learn about the landscape of human trafficking in our own backyards and how you can identify victims of human trafficking.
Pending approval, social workers can earn 2 free CEU credits by attending.
This is part of Preterm’s Monthly Community Event Series, so it’s free and open to the public! No RSVP necessary. Parking is available in the Preterm parking lot. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Instead of focusing on intense political issues that call for activism, let's just sit down and relax with some good food and drinks. Like we did for the Anniversary Party we'll ask for a $10 donation at the door to cover the food and drinks but the donation is not necessary to come and celebrate with us!

Let's get together to watch Legalize Democracy and discuss plans for next year.
If you're frustrated by unlimited dark money political ads but don't know what you can do, this is a great event to get started.
This film is a 30 minute explanation of why we need an amendment to the Constitution to make clear that corporations are not people and money is not speech. It is fast-paced, educational, and inspirational!
Afterwards, we can talk about holding a Movement Education Program series next year.

CCPC has invited the four announced Democratic Party candidates as well as the Green Party candidate to speak to our membership and answer questions in separate Forums. Our goal is to conduct all five of the Forums between the end of our November Regional Meetings and the Holiday Season. CCPC's endorsement in the Governor's race will be determined by a vote of our membership in early 2018. We are hopeful that these Forum's will help our members make an informed decision on who to vote for in our endorsement process. All 5 candidates have agreed to participate.

As you may know legislation has been introduced in County Council to reduce the use of plastic and paper carryout bags by retailers in Cuyahoga County. The legislation targets larger retailers (over 7,000 sq. ft.) and will require a 10 cent fee for those wishing to use a plastic or paper carryout bag for their purchases. The money generated by the sale of bags will be designated to provide 4 cents per bag going to the retailer for the administrative costs of collecting the fees and managing the system. The remaining 6 cents will go into the County’s Environmental Remediation Fund and may be used to pay costs of eligible environmental expenses including clean-up of lakes, rivers and waterways, pollution prevention and remediation, litter removal, education and awareness and other activities intended to combat the polluting effects of and accompanying blight caused by plastic and paper carryout bags on the environment in Cuyahoga County. The fee revenue will also be used to provide high quality, re-useable bags to Cuyahoga County residents FREE of charge. With the Trump Administration making significant cuts to Lake Erie cleanup and environmental cleanup and protection efforts in general, it will be up to us to lead the way if we want to keep our Lake, beaches, parks and neighborhoods clean from the litter caused by plastic and paper carryout bags. We are on a tight timeline as the legislation is scheduled for second reading of the legislation on November 28 and final vote on December 12. We need your help in mobilizing support. There are several key actions that will help make our voices heard:
Attend the County Council Meetings on Tuesday, November 28 at 5 pm for the second reading and the Council Meeting on December 12 at 5 pm when the vote on the legislation will take place. (Parking is free at the County Parking Garage)
Call and/or email your County Councilperson urging them to support the Carryout bag legislation. You can find their contact information here
