I couldn’t Sit on the Sidelines Anymore!

If you would have asked me 2 years ago, if I would be running for office, I would have laughed.

But after Tuesday November 8th, I knew I had to do something.

I always thought I was born in the wrong generation. As a teenager, I wanted to go back in time and join a movement. I wanted to be in the trenches with the pioneers of the women’s suffrage movement, drive change with Dorothy Height , march with Dr. King and help Shirley Chisholm get a “Seat at the Table” during her presidential campaign. I understood the power of all people, regardless of color, status, religion or lifestyle, coming together to make a REAL Difference.

I started organizing early by creating a Black Student Association at my local Catholic high school. I had one goal. I wanted to make sure that everyone had a voice. Little did I know, that there was a seed sprouting on the inside of me. I was raised with parents who instilled the values of faith, family and service. I grew up, understanding that it was my responsibility to make this world a better place.

While I always saw myself mobilizing volunteers, training change agents and inspiring people, I never saw myself in politics.

But something changed in January of 2017.

The Women’s March helped to water the seed that had been planted in me decades earlier. It created a spark that could not be ignored. I couldn’t sit on the sidelines -complaining and wishing for change. It was my responsibility to make it happen.
It’s a New Day across cities in America.

I am fighting for all voices to be heard at the table.

Noni Banks with family

I am running for State Representative for the 19th District of Ohio because you deserve a leader with the skills, insight and passion needed to drive real change.

It’s only right that you have a say in how policies affect your family, home and wallet.

I have the drive, passion and experience to help Ohio reach its potential. Our community needs a leader who will be dedicated to giving the Buckeye State the tools it requires to be the best it can be.

Throughout my career as a business owner, non-profit Director, and crime victim advocate, I have remained a tireless advocate for all individuals to build better lives for themselves and their children.

As a strong advocate for empowerment, I founded an organization that focuses on developing business ownership among women to create economic opportunities.

As a grassroots organizer, community leader and bridge builder, I worked to create relationships that created opportunities, access to resources and programs to protect some of the most vulnerable populations in Ohio.

With your energy and support, we can ensure that all Ohioans have the resources and opportunities they need to prosper.
