LAS VEGAS- Battle Born Progress is excited to announce that Former Ohio State Senator Nina Turner will join us for our Progressive Summit on Saturday, January 30, 2016.
She will be present to campaign on behalf of Bernie Sanders.
Turner is currently a professor of history at Cuyahoga Community College and Chair of Party Engagement at the Ohio Democratic Party. In 2005, Turner was elected as the first woman to represent Ward 1 on the Cleveland City Council. In 2008, she was appointed to the vacant 25th District Ohio Senate seat and two years later was elected by her constituents to continue her service as their voice in Columbus. In 2014, Turner chose to forgo her last term as State Senator and run for Secretary of State as the Democratic challenger to fight for free and unfettered access to the ballot box for all Ohioans.
The second annual Progressive Summit will be held in Las Vegas at the College of Southern Nevada’s Charleston Campus. CSN is one of many generous sponsors this year. The event will feature national, state and local speakers, panels and workshops to teach community members the basics of how to be involved as a grassroots activist in 2016 and beyond. This day and a half long event is open to the public. Participants must register to attend and can do so here: http://bit.ly/SouthernNV_Summit. There is a $20.00 attendance fee and scholarships are available. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided both days.
