TAKE ACTION: TELL GOV. DEWINE TO STOP THE LICENSE TO DISCRIMINATE!

In just a couple minutes, you can make a powerful impact. Elected officials take calls from people very seriously.

Please call Governor DeWine at (614) 644-4357. If the harmful license to discriminate currently in the state budget is passed by the Legislature, he is our last chance to prevent state-endorsed discrimination against LGBTQ+ people seeking healthcare in Ohio.

You will likely speak to an aide, or if it’s after hours, you’ll leave a voicemail.

Say something like this:

My name is [name] and I am calling to ask that Governor DeWine stops the provision in the state budget which would allow medical professionals to deny services based on their own personal beliefs. Ohio should be working to prevent discrimination, but this provision will have a devastating impact on LGBTQ+ Ohioans and tell the world that Ohio encourages discrimination agains LGBTQ+ people and other minorities. That’s not the Ohio any of us want to see.
