MAKE A CALL
In just a couple minutes, you can make a powerful impact. Legislators take calls from people very seriously.
Please call Senator Terry Johnson at (614) 466-8082. He is the chair of the Ohio Senate Workforce and Higher Education Committee, so he can decide whether to stop the ban transgender athletes in high school and college sports. Since this issue impacts all Ohioans, he 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] and I am calling to ask that Senator Johnson stops Senate Bill 132, which would ban transgender athletes from participating in high school and college sports. This bill will have a devastating effect on transgender athletes. Sports are for everyone, and the Ohio High School Athletic Association and NCAA have policies in place to ensure that sports are fair and accessible to all. This bill cannot pass.
