Take Action: Call Senator Portman!

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

Please call Senator Rob Portman at (614) 469-6774. He represents Ohio in the US Senate, and his vote is very important to passing the Equality Act. Anti-equality groups are calling his office every day, so he needs to hear from pro-equality veterans like you!

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 a veteran of the [Military Branch]. I am calling to ask Senator Portman to support HR 5 and S. 393, the Equality Act. As a veteran, I served our county to protect our country and the fundamental rights we all value as Americans. That includes the right to live our lives free of discrimination. Passing the Equality Act will secure that promise for all veterans, including our LGBTQ veterans.
