Jefferson Center for New Democratic Processes: Your Voice Ohio

Your Voice Ohio is a project of the Jefferson Center, a nonpartisan civic engagement nonprofit who believes high-quality and trustworthy information forms the bedrock of a healthy and vibrant democracy. Staff work closely with Ohio journalists and local organizers to create and manage community events and digital outreach.

Why We Invested

Your Voice Ohio works alongside newsrooms and communities across Ohio to convene community dialogues, help frame news coverage, develop locally-relevant solutions and identify resources to support those solutions, ultimately with the goal of increased civic participation and informed communities throughout Ohio.

By developing and deploying engagement strategies and tools, Your Voice Ohio is helping journalists (re)build relationships with audiences, and report stories that better respond to the needs of their communities.
