Community Conversations with the Ohio Community Rights Network
February 28, 2024, 6:00 PM

The Ohio Community Rights Network invites you for a discussion on State Preemption on from around the state. This will be the first in a series of Community Conversations which OHCRN plans to facilitate monthly. The virtual discussion will join an in-person panel from the Athens community.   

In order to prepare for a rich discussion, we are asking you to view this short (less than 5 minute) video on Preemption and consider the following questions beforehand.  

1. What are the two main types of preemption and what is the difference? 
2. What are some of the most recent examples of state preemption in Ohio?
3. Which type of preemption is mostly being used by state legislatures these days and what are the arguments used to justify them? Whose interests are being served by enacting them?
4. Have you had direct experience with a state or federal preemption law in your community? Does the principle of democracy conflict with state preemption?

“Canary”: The Fight for our Future Begins at 18,000 Feet

Witness the extraordinary life of Dr. Lonnie Thompson, an explorer who went where no scientist had gone before and transformed our idea of what is possible. Daring to seek Earth’s history contained in glaciers atop the tallest mountains in the world, Lonnie found himself on the frontlines of climate change — his life’s work evolving into a salvage mission to recover these priceless historical records before they disappear forever.
