About us

The ProgressOhio family of organizations is devoted to bringing progressive change and full equality in Ohio and across the country. ProgressOhio Education is affaliated with our sister orgnization ProgressOhio.org This is the website of ProgressOhio Education aka Create A Better Ohio.


ProgressOhio (PO) was formed in 2006, to be a non-profit dedicated to working on behalf of progressive causes in Ohio. We are affiliated with ProgressNow and USAction. ProgressOhio is a clearinghouse for Progressive ideas, which continually challenges the status quo of government and propaganda in the media and seeks to make sure progressive ideas are heard.

Our research has led to the overturning of a state law, exposed a shadowy conservative group that over half our state legislators belonged to, and forced the president of The Ohio State University to resign from the board of the most notorious coal company in America.

Our online and earned media campaigns have resulted in international coverage and big victories, like getting the largest gun show promoter in Ohio to adopt mandatory background checks. ProgressOhio Education is a recognized voice on top progressive issues like voter suppression, redistricting reform, revenue enhancement, women’s rights, payday lending reform, and health care. We’ve also lead the way fighting against privatization and for greater public access, taking our legal arguments all the way to the Ohio Supreme Court.

ProgressOhio Education is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization. Please consider making a investment in our future by making a contribution. 

None of the ProgressOhio organizations make contributions to or expressly advocate for the election or defeat of candidates for public office.
