Take Action: Call Chair Manchester!
In just a couple minutes, you can make a powerful impact. Legislators take calls from people very seriously.
Please call House Chair Manchester at (614) 466-6344. She is the Chair of the House Aging, Families, and Human Services Committee, so she can decide whether to advance HB 454 or not. Since this issue impacts all Ohioans, she needs to hear from all of us, regardless of your district.
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 Chair Manchester to stop 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 stop HB 454 and do not allow the bill receive another hearing. Thank you for your time!
