Tell the House Civil Justice Committee to Advance the Ohio Fairness Act


No matter our differences, many of us want the same things: to have a roof over our head and the opportunity to earn a living for our families.

But until Ohio legislators take action, our state law offers no protections to LGBTQ Ohioans in employment, housing or public accommodations. This means that currently a person can be fired, denied housing, or refused service simply because of who they love or how they identify. That is not the Ohio we want to live in.

But with the Ohio Fairness Act, Ohio lawmakers have the opportunity to extend basic protections to the LGBTQ community. This bill would prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

This bipartisan bill has received several hearings in the Senate, and recently an identical bill was introduced in the House. This is exciting news — a "companion bill," as it is called, demonstrates broad support for a bill. We need you to contact the House Civil Justice Committee and urge them to advance the Ohio Fairness Act. It is far past time for basic LGBTQ equality.

Dear Representative

I write to express my support for the bipartisan Ohio Fairness Act, and urge you to move it through the committee process. It is very important to me that all Ohioans, including LGBTQ Ohioans, are protected from discrimination at work, in housing, and in accessing public accommodations.

Please stand with me for equality in Ohio, and advance the Ohio Fairness Act.
