Women Making Waves 2018: Keynote Address By Nina Turner
Former Ohio State Senator and current President of Our Revolution Nina Turner will be the keynote speaker at this year's Women Making Waves Brunch!
Senator Turner is committed to advocating for progressive ideals and values and is a clear example of why we need more women in politics. In a time where there is a new story of sexual harassment nearly every day, a voice like Nina's is vital to motivate and energize women to take leadership positions in all levels of our government.
Women Making Waves is committed to encouraging more women to run for office. Right now women account for only 19% of Congress but are 51% of the population. Let’s change this.

Carol has demonstrated her commitment and ability to work effectively as an elected official on the state and local level. She has consistently been a leading voice for meaningful policy changes that positively impact our most marginalized community members. In her first term as State Representative, Carol was extremely successful in passing legislation with bipartisan support.
Your voice truly matters and this is a great way to be heard. Community Advisory Panels assist in monitoring the bills that are being introduced, assessing them for how they will impact the 103rd district, and developing legislation. Interested in joining the conversation? There are many ways to participate.
In November of 2014 voters elected the first African-American and African-American female state Representative of the 103rd District. This was made possible because over 200 volunteers knocked on more than 20,000 doors, made more than 16,000 phone calls, sent out 2,500 thank you cards, and registered more than 2,500 voters.
