The SocietyAreas of Equality
The society exists as a mechanism for applying resources to specific issues with focus and data-driven expertise.
Support Transgender Youth
Transgender visibility is on the rise, and transgender youth need to be supported to mitigate the high risks of violence and adverse mental health outcomes they face.
Statewide Legal Protections for LGBTQ People Who Experience Discrimination
Currently, about a quarter of Ohioans live in localities that have nondiscrimination ordinances on the books. This is unacceptable – nobody should be forced to move simply to have an opportunity to go to work and provide for their families.
Keeping Our Elders Resourced and Free From Discrimination
LGBTQ elders face increased rates of discrimination and poverty. Our elders fought for the LGBTQ community’s rights, and they deserve to be safe and not experience discrimination.
LGBTQ youth – and youth perceived to be LGBTQ – are often bullied. The first step to addressing bullying is to enumerate LGBTQ youth in anti-bullying legislation, but that’s not enough. Comprehensive bullying prevention involves addressing the school climate and district-level policy.
