Scroll this page to view the art of the ORG. Over the years, several artists, designers, musicians and videographers have offered their services to the Ohio Rights Group, producing a remarkable collection of images, memes and videos that depict the issues of our times. Sadly, as seen at the bottom of this page, a few memes also memorialize our friends and colleagues who only remain with us in spirit.

Joe Zoretic (1968-2007) Although Joe's passing predates the ORG, he was certainly on our minds. His activism inspired the formation of medical marijuana advocacy groups like the Ohio Rights Group. In fact, Joe carries the unique distinction of being one of the few individuals to be memorialized in the Congressional Record for medical marijuana. He received similar recognition from both chambers of the Ohio Legislature. Then U.S. Representative Dennis Kucinich used these words to describe Joe's commitment to the cause: "Love and bravery can overcome injustice."
Sheena Moore (1985-2016) ORG Summit County Captain, passionate advocate and signature gatherer extraordinaire.
