Rally Around Ohio to Commemorate Memorial Day

Cleveland, Ohio, May 19, 2020 – Free Ohio Now announces Memorial Day Remembrance Rallies! With many public Memorial Day Remembrance events canceled across Ohio this year, Free Ohio Now strongly believes honoring the memory of those Americans who made the ultimate sacrifice to defend our Constitutional rights, individual freedoms, and way of life is too important to pass without tribute.

To honor our fallen soldiers, marines, airmen and sailors, peaceful rallies will be held in counties across Ohio this Saturday, May 23 at 1:00 pm or at specific afternoon hours as arranged by individual counties. People attending the rallies are asked to bring American flags, to dress in red, white and blue and to make signs to honor our fallen. Check https://www.freeohionow.com for details on what’s happening in each county.


In a statement by Tom Hach, Free Ohio Now Core Team member: “The sacrifices made by over 1.4 Million Americans since the founding of our country to defend our freedoms is observed every year, and this year should NOT be any different. Every man and woman who died in the cause of defending freedom confronted the horror of battle and every Ohioan should recognize the great cost of liberty and the gifts of individual selfless valor that have shaped America.” Please participate in honoring our fallen heroes by attending a county rally on Saturday, May 23 and by observing a moment of silence on Monday, May 25.


Free Ohio Now demands a better future for Ohio!

  • Rescind the State of Emergency Order and the Safe (Stay) at Home Order in Ohio immediately.

  • Release all Coronavirus data and cease all contact tracing efforts.

  • Open all Ohio businesses now and without restrictions.

  • Continue with in-person voting in November, 2020, and beyond.

  • Pass laws to prevent unconstitutional statewide quarantines of healthy individuals.

Free Ohio Now strongly believes enough is now known about the at-risk segments of the population who are most vulnerable to Coronavirus, including the elderly and those with already compromised health, to show continuing the State of Emergency and Safe (Stay) at Home Orders for the general public are no longer justified. These sanctions need to be lifted immediately for all low-risk Ohioans so they can achieve life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as they see fit!

Free Ohio Now Announces Demands

Many are asking what it is that we continue to protest about. They parrot what they hear out of Columbus, that ‘Ohio is open now’. Well, not exactly. The state of emergency order is still in place, the stay at home order is still in place and regulations on businesses are over the top.

To be clear about what we are asking we developed this list of demands.

Please share this with your contacts.

Rally Around Ohio Beyond Expectations

Ohio – Thank you to all who attended the Rally Around Ohio events held throughout the state today, Saturday, May 9th.  Without your participation in the rallies, Columbus would not know the level of frustration in all corners of the State with the stay-at-home order and the resulting stalled economy!  Search the internet using key words ‘Rally Around Ohio’ and look at all of the coverage!  If Gov. DeWine and Dr. Acton did not get our collective message, it is because they do not care to hear it!

Free Ohio Now’s Rally Around Ohio coordinator wants to thank the 34 volunteer county coordinators and their local support teams for pulling together their events on such short notice.  From start to finish, the Rally Around Ohio event was planned and successfully conducted IN JUST 9 DAYS!  The fact that so much was accomplished so quickly is a tribute to the dedication and talent of the county event coordinators.  These county leaders should also be praised for their dedication to restoring the rights of the people of Ohio, for wanting to help their unemployed neighbors by encouraging the immediate opening of all Ohio’s business, and for their desire to ensure that all government data is released so an honest assessment of the crisis can be made of the actions of our elected and appointed officials.

Thank you again for all you do in the name of liberty and freedom!

We will have a full report on the Rally Around Ohio once we get the reports in from the counties.  

Thank you again for an unbelievable multi-county rally yesterday! Free Ohio Now defends the Bill of Rights for every Ohioan against local and state government overreach by advocating freedom and personal responsibility.

The 1851 Center for  Constitutional Law is suing the Department of Health for violation of Due Process. “The April 2 Order fails to provide owners of non-essential business any opportunity for a hearing where the State must demonstrate that such businesses are indeed non-essential and incapable of safe operation.” stated in their press release on April 16th. We applaud the 1851 Center for standing up and defending our constitutional rights.
