Get InvolvedWhat Can You Do?

Equality Ohio is working for YOU.

We’re working to pass a statewide nondiscrimination bill, and we’re supporting municipalities as they seek to add nondiscrimination protections at the local level.

Through our commitment to racial and social justice, we’re addressing issues of inequality at the margins. And with our commitment to expanding inclusive faith traditions, we’re mobilizing communities of faith across Ohio to help end LGBTQ inequality.

The work of realizing a fair and welcoming Ohio requires real conversations with real people. With your help, we give Ohioans the opportunity to engage in ways that affect change, not only on a statewide level, but in their neighborhoods and cities.

When you support the work of Equality Ohio Education Fund, you are fueling life-changing connections in homes, churches, and businesses across the state.

Donate today. Let your dollars become the words that change the heart and mind of our next Ally.
