Welcome to Ohio Student Association

Ohio Student Association (OSA) is a statewide organization led by young people in Ohio, working together in an intergenerational movement for racial, social, economic and educational justice. Our leaders are between 18 and 35 and some of us are not students, some creatives and art activists, others are high school students, college students, graduates and grad students. We are on campuses and in communities across the state of Ohio. We organize young people in order to build independent political power because #TheMidwestGotSomethingToSay!

We hold trainings, leadership meetings, direct actions, and creative kick-backs all the time. If you think we’re dope and wanna pop-up at an event or even volunteer, sign up!
