State Rep. Tavia Galonski (D-Akron) recently announced her appointment to the National Conference of State Legislators (NCSL) Task Force on International Relations, which explores the important role states can play in global affairs.

“It is important for states to research and foster global relationships so they may expand their potential impact in unique ways well beyond the border,” said Galonski. “Being able to take part in these conversations is truly an honor, and I look forward to putting partisanship aside to address important global issues.”

The Task Force on International Relations reviews NCSL’s activities with international governments, discusses international activities and potential local impact, works with other international legislative organizations regarding policy and institutional matters and investigates availability of resources from the U.S. or foreign governments that support expanded international cooperation between lawmakers, legislative staff and their counterparts.

Galonski represents Ohio’s 35th district, which is comprised of parts of Akron and Barberton.
