The Ohio Senate is holding hearings on Senate Bill 11, the Ohio Fairness Act. Introduced in February by State Senator Nickie Antonio, the Ohio Fairness Act would outlaw discrimination in Ohio based on a person’s sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
Senate Bill 11 has broad support among advocacy groups like the ACLU and EqualityOhio as well as business groups like the Ohio Chamber of Commerce and the Ohio Manufacturers’ Association. However, the Ohio General Assembly has failed time and time again to pass the bill.
Please take a minute to send a message to State Senators that it’s time for Ohio to move forward and end legal discrimination.
