Keep equality in Bowling Green, Ohio

Discrimination is on the ballot in Bowling Green, Ohio, as two ballot initiatives seek to rescind housing and employment protections for LGBT people in the city.

Ordinance 7905 provides equal rights for housing and ordinance 7906 provides equal rights for employment and business services to citizens despite their gender, gender expression, gender identity, pregnancy, sexual orientation, creed, military status, veteran status, marital status, physical characteristics, HIV status and genetic information.

A yes vote on both ordinances 7905 and 7906 maintains housing and employment protections for LGBT people.

BG Citizens Voting No to Special Rights Discrimination sent this mailer to voters in Bowling Green, urging them to vote no on the ordinances. The flier disparages transgender women and reframes the ordinances from an issue of housing and employment protections for LGBT people to a sinister liberal vehicle for putting “real” women and children in danger.

ONE Bowling Green is the local campaign formed to urge Bowling Green voters to approve ordinances 7905 and 7906 on November 2. The campaign has created several TV and radio ads to dispel misinformation about these ordinances providing special rights or compromising restroom privacy rights.
