Today marks Equality Ohio‘s annual lobby day. People from across the Buckeye State will meet with their state legislators, urging them to support the Equal Housing and Employment Act, which is currently stalled in the Ohio Senate.
I will be meeting with lawmakers from my hometown, Sen. Tom Niehaus and Rep. Joe Uecker, both staunch Republicans. Uecker even requires his staff to wear pro-life precious feet lapel pins; clearly, I have my work cut out for me.
If you can’t make it to lobby day, look up your representative’s phone number and senator’s phone number, call them and tell them why equal rights are important for you and your loved ones. It takes less than a minute and makes a huge impact.
