    National RCV Letter to the Editor Workshop

    A great way to spread a positive message about Ranked Choice Voting throughout Ohio is for all of us to write Letters to The Editor (LTEs). Join us as Ohioans attend this Rank the Vote Workshop at the national level. You'll learn best practices and strategies to write an LTE for your local or regional news outlets. Download the Rank the Vote Ohio LTE Toolkit for more help at the state level too.  We look forward to seeing you there.

    Democracy Solutions Summit

    Day 1 of RepresentWomen's Democracy Solutions Summit focuses on Ranked Choice Voting!  Ranked choice voting is the fastest-growing election reform in the nation and, with two statewide and several municipal ballot measures happening this year, 2024 is the biggest year yet for ranked choice voting. Day one of the 2024 Democracy Solutions Summit brings to the table the women who have been, and continue to be, vital to this work. From US Senators to top women philanthropists to grassroots campaign leaders, we will hear all about the state of ranked choice voting. 

    ### Expert Discussion 1: Deep Dive on Alaska

    Time: 3:05-3:30pm ET
    In 2022, Alaska used ranked choice voting statewide for the very first time. Day One kicks off with a live fireside chat between US Senator Lisa Murkowski (AK), US Representative Mary Peltola (AK), and Alaska State Senator Cathy Giessel all about the impact ranked choice voting has had on democracy and representation in Alaska, and why the "Alaska model" is so important for voters during this presidential election year.

    ### Expert Discussion 2: The Women Funding the Movement

    Time: 3:30-4:10pm ET
    The work to strengthen our democracy wouldn't be possible without the investment of generous donors. Historically, due to centuries of systemic barriers and cultural practices, philanthropy has been dominated by men. This has a significant impact on what is deemed a priority, and which solutions are considered worth investment.  RepresentWomen wants to shift that narrative and highlight the women who are investing in bold and innovative solutions where our country needs them most. The second session of Day One will be a fireside chat between Winny Chen, Associate Director for the Governance program at Democracy Fund, and Laura Arnold, philanthropist and co-founder of Arnold Ventures, who will share their funding philosophies and why investing in voting reform is so important.
    Immediately following that conversation, Erika Wood , Senior Program Officer at the Ford Foundation, and Emily Lockwood of Pivotal Ventures will highlight some practical ways funders can get involved in this work.

    ### Take Action Panel: 2024 Ranked Choice Voting Ballot Measures and How You Can Get Involved

    Time: 4:10-4:55pm ET
    The day wraps up by bringing it close to home with a panel conversation with the leaders of a few key RCV ballot measure campaigns that are happening as we speak. It just so happens that the leaders of these campaigns are all women! (Are we really that surprised?) Diane Silver, Advocacy Manager at FairVote, will sit down with Sol Mora of RCV Oregon and Lisa Rice of the Making All Voices Count effort in Washington, DC, to hear what we need to know about these campaigns, how things are going, and how we can get involved. We are also hoping to hear from the Colorado effort and the Alaska protect-the-win effort!
