Statewide Community Organizing

Equality Ohio works in communities across the state on a variety of issues that affect people including inclusive nondiscrimination protections, banning conversion “therapy” on minors, increasing access to services for transgender people, and more.

LGBTQ-inclusive Nondiscrimination Laws: Until our state legislature passes the Ohio Fairness Act, it is up to cities and localities across the state to pass nondiscrimination ordinances in their local city and village councils to protect their community members. Because of the patchwork of protections, many Ohioans lose their civil rights on their daily commute. Check out the map at the link below to see if your community has passed a local nondiscrimination ordinance.

Contact advocacy@equalityohio.org if you’re interested in working with your city council to pass a local nondiscrimination ordinance.
