Much of our work has been for equal protections under the law. It's shocking, but true: in Ohio, you can generally be fired, denied access to housing, or denied basic goods and services just because of who you are or whom you love. We are working to change that.
In addition, LGBTQ Ohioans are marginalized by many systems and in many situations. Equality Ohio has secured initial funding to create a legal clinic. We are reaching out to you to join us in this process. Currently, we are seeking legal practitioners who are interested in any of the following: (1) Connecting with others across the state working on LGBTQ issues; (2) Providing pro-bono assistance for members of the LGBTQ community for CLE credit; (3) Creating educational materials for the LGBTQ community about your area of expertise; (4) Being added to a referral list for those seeking support from an LGBTQ or Allied practitioner.
