Make a Call

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

Please call Representative Scott Wiggam at 614-482-4791. He is the chair of the Ohio House State and Local Government Committee, so he can decide whether to advance the National Coming Out Day bill. 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 Representative Wiggam hold a hearing for House Bill 363, which designates National Coming Out Day and recognizes the experiences of LGBTQ Ohioans, so it can move through the legislative process.
