Equality Ohio and the Human Rights Campaign are partnering up to advocate for LGBTQ equality and we need your help! It’s still legal in Ohio to discriminate against people in the LGBTQ community. There’s a bill, the Ohio Fairness Act, that will make that type of discrimination illegal. Specifically, it protects against employment discrimination, housing discrimination, and discrimination in accessing basic goods and services (also known as public accommodations). It’s got bipartisan support in both the Ohio House (HB369) and Ohio Senate (SB11).
One of the most impactful tools we have is the power to drive phone calls to the legislators who can move this bill forward. This is why we need YOU to help us call Ohioans and connect them with their elected leaders. Please bring your phone and laptop with you, if you’re able. We’ll have a few available for folks to use. Our hope is that you will leave feeling empowered, and knowing you’ve made a difference.
We meet from 6:30 – 9pm on the first and third Tuesday of each month at Cleveland-Marshall School of Law in Cleveland, Equality Ohio main office in Columbus, and at Caracole, Inc. in Cincinnati. If you are unable to attend any of our in-person sessions, you can also join us virtually!
Due to the primary election and St. Patrick’s Day we will be meeting on Tuesday, March 24th this month. We hope you can join us!
