Stop SB 104, Ohio’s Amended Anti-Trans Bathroom Bill

Take Action

Late in the evening on June 26, the Ohio House amended House Bill 183 - an anti-trans bathroom bill - into Senate Bill 104, a completely unrelated bill regarding the College Credit Plus program. This means that now SB 104 includes the harmful, egregious provisions that were included in HB 183. SB 104 will next be voted on by the full Ohio Senate. We MUST stop this bill.

SB 104 would require students in primary and secondary schools as well as institutions of higher education to use restrooms and other facilities that align with their sex assigned at birth. It would also prohibit them from sharing overnight accommodations with individuals of the opposite sex from their sex assigned at birth. This is yet another state-sponsored attack on transgender, gender-nonconforming, and intersex (TGNCI) youth and young adults.

Legislators have no business telling TGNCI people what restrooms or locker rooms to use. Transgender people who are forced to use the restroom or locker room that does not align with their gender identity risk being bullied, harassed, or outright targeted for violence.

SB 104 would create an unsafe environment for TGNCI people across our school districts and college campuses. Because of its apparent lack of any enforcement mechanism, it encourages individuals to profile and single out those whom they believe to be transgender, gender-nonconforming, or simply not masculine/feminine “enough.”

TAKE ACTION: Contact the Ohio Senate and tell them to vote NO on SB 104.
