We believe in the power of our faith and the voice of religious people. We think discrimination is wrong, and that  LGBTQ-inclusive nondiscrimination protections will not harm our religious liberty.

As organizations working in diverse religious traditions throughout Ohio, we affirm the sacred dignity and worth of all human beings – for all are created equal, a reflection of the divine. Our faiths unite us in a moral obligation to treat others with the respect we desire for ourselves.

Nondiscrimination protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals will not harm religious liberty.

We believe it is immoral to deny lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons jobs, housing, and access to public goods and services because:

It deprives them of the means to feed, clothe, and care for themselves and their families.

It denies their basic humanity

We know firsthand the devastating effects discrimination can have on individuals, families, and communities.

This prejudice is not benign. It hurts our communities.

As organizations, houses of worship, and communities building up people who will lead religious & faith-based communities, we believe that nondiscrimination protections are essential to how we live out our beliefs.

We gather people who respect the worth of all and believe that everyone should be able to call Ohio home. We equip our leaders to advocate for these protections. We call on our elected leaders to take action.

We are proud to be an organization who supports lived and legal equality for all.

Ohioans are being denied jobs, housing, and services based on their perceived identity as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender. We believe it is immoral to deprive anyone of the means to feed, clothe, and care for themselves and their families. When people are discriminated against, their basic humanity is fundamentally denied. We know firsthand the devastating effects discrimination can have on individuals, families, and communities. This prejudice is not benign. It hurts our communities.

I’m proud to be a person of faith who supports lived and legal equality for all.
