    Radioactive Ohio Legislation - w/ Roxanne Groff and Chief Silverio Cagg

    Radioactive Ohio Legislation - w/ Roxanne Groff and Chief Silverio Cagg

    Carolyn Harding with Roxanne Groff and Chief Sil, in the thick of Ohio oil & gas rule making, updating the Ohio Class II injection well regulations, written by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and slated for a hearing of the State House JCARR committee (Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review) as early as Monday, December 6.

    I got my start in activism ten years ago, raising the alarm of the radioactive waste stream of fracking, and conventional oil and gas waste. You both have been integral in this fight to protect Ohio citizens from indiscriminate, dangerous regulations and laws, most of which favor the oil & gas industry, allowing the massive radioactive waste stream to be dumped into our watersheds, landfills, injection wells, and spread on our roads and highways, as ice and dust control, aka brine.

    Ohio Anti-Protest Bills - Statehouse Stomp

    For the second segment of GrassRoot Ohio, We get the update of the current Anti-Protesting Bills (HB 22, HB 109, and SB 41). Bills that would fine, create penalties or even felonize peaceful protests, and chill our First Amendment Rights of speech and assembly. Kristen Beireis and Joan VanBecelaere, organizers with Our Voices Together and Unitarian Universalist Justice Ohio, are here to update us and tell us how we can help Stop These Bills - to register and get more information: https://www.facebook.com/UUJusticeOhio

    Warren G. Harding and Me

    Warren G. Harding and Me

    I’m Carolyn Harding and today I would like to share my take, my personal opinion on an Ohioan with an infamous past, my great great uncle, Warren G. Harding.

    It’s been just over 100 years since his election and inauguration and I’ve been doing some deep diving, reading books, talking with family, trying to prepare myself to deal with an upcoming event in Marion Ohio, where my extended family will gather together: my elderly parents, my sisters, aunts and uncles, cousins I haven’t seen for years, and some I have never met - most folks with very different politics than my own.

    When I saw the line up of speakers for the dedication, I was aghast - I’ve protested most of them, many times!, with signs, fists, petitions, testimonies, rallies, marches, GrassRoot Ohio shows, and at the ballot box!

    So what do I do? Do I show up as a family member or do I show up as an activist…..

    I’ve decided to show up here as an activist, and show up there as family…. if I can.

    For today’s show: Warren G. and Me. I’m going to share an opinion piece I’ve been working on from my lens, my perspective, of my great great uncle, Warren G. Harding. Then I’ll play the testimony I gave in 2018 opposing Ohio SB 250, the precursor of the current anti-protest bills in the Ohio legislature (HB 22, HB 109, and SB 41), bills if passed will felonize our right to peacefully protest, our First Amendment right!

    Both the op ed and the Senate Judiciary Committee testimony are fueled by my relationship with Warren G. Harding.


    Thanks for joining me today.

    ProChoice with Heart - with Whitney Shanahan & Cymphony

    ProChoice with Heart - with Whitney Shanahan & Cymphony

    Carolyn Harding with Whitney Shanahan, Founder of ProChoice with Heart, a growing organization that focuses on holding protests across the country fighting for women's rights! They wear red as a symbol of women's oppression, inspired by Margaret Atwood’s book and hulu show, Handmaid's Tale.

    According to Planned Parenthood Advocates of Ohio, “On September 1st one of the most extreme abortion bans went into effect — Texas’s S.B. 8 will ban abortion at six weeks of pregnancy and encourages private citizens to act as abortion bounty hunters — allowing anyone to sue any Texan who they believe provided an abortion, or even helped a patient get an abortion, after six weeks.” Can you lay out what just happened in Texas, with the six-week abortion ban.

    What does that mean for the everyday Texan woman, their loved ones, and health care providers?

    What does this mean for everyday Ohioan women, their loved ones and health care providers?
