The Ohio Community Rights Network

Local People for Local Rights

Every Ohioan retains an inalienable right to participate in community local self-government in the place where they live. But every citizen of Ohio is denied the full enjoyment of that right, and many are denied it completely.

Mission: OHCRN is a statewide, grassroots network working to educate, empower, and motivate Ohioans to build equitable communities, to secure the right of democratic local self-governance, and to recognize and establish the legal rights of Nature to exist and flourish throughout Ohio.


We envision Ohio as a place where people have the right to decide in their communities on

 issues affecting the health, safety, and welfare of present and future generations; we

 recognize that people can only exist and thrive if Nature exists, flourishes

 and thrives.
