Take Action: Call Senator Portman!

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

Please call Senator Rob Portman at 614-469-6774 and thank him for supporting the Respect for Marriage Act in the Senate. He is a key leader in the US Senate and his support pushed the Respect for Marriage Act over the finish line. Many offices, including Senator Portman’s, have been inundated with calls from those who oppose LGBTQ+ equality, and we need to fight back.

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 thank Senator Portman for supporting the Respect for Marriage Act and working with his colleagues to pass it through the Senate. The Respect for Marriage Act is so important to families like mine across Ohio, and passing it will show LGBTQ  people here and abroad that the United States protects and supports all its people.
