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], my pronouns are (your pronouns), and I am calling to ask the Representative to vote NO on HB 454, preventing minors in Ohio from receiving the recommended medical care and further stigmatize transgender and non-binary youth. Everyone in Ohio, regardless of their age or gender, deserves access to safe, fact-based medical care. Please vote NO on HB 454 and do not allow the bill receive another hearing. Thank you for your time!
