      Join us for the 2019 MBK Ohio Statewide Convening featuring Senator Sherrod Brown in Columbus, Ohio on October 2nd, 2019!  The 2019 MBK Ohio Statewide Convening will provide a space for community members, leaders, local residents, organizers, and young people from across the state to learn from one another and unite collectively to help MBK communities develop a plan of action for racial equity in their communities. This convening will offer participants opportunities to engage with one another through interactive workshops, panel discussions, and a robust resource fair. All ages are welcome!  Keynotes will be provided by Senator Sherrod Brown and Michael Smith, Executive Director of the MBK Alliance and Director of Youth Opportunity Programs at the Obama Foundation.  Event check-in begins at 9 AM, with welcome remarks beginning at 10 AM. Light breakfast and lunch will be provided.  Thank you to our generous event sponsors: The Ohio State University's Office of Diversity & Inclusion; OSU Extension; and The Ohio State University's College of Education and Human Ecology's Office of Equity, Diversity, and Global Engagement (EDGE).  Interested in becoming an event co-sponsor? Your investment will help support MBK Ohio's efforts to serve as a statewide coordinator to address systemic barriers and build pipelines for young people of color.

The Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race & Ethnicity at The Ohio State University leads the coordination of the statewide network and works in partnership with the university’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion and the Office of Senator Sherrod Brown to help MBK communities build capacity, implement evidence-based strategies, and measure progress in closing opportunity gaps for Ohio's youth.
