Equal Housing and Employment Act Officially Introduced With Bi-Partisan Support
The Equal Housing and Employment Act (“EHEA”) has been introduced in the Ohio General Assembly, and a rally supporting the bill is being held on the steps of the Ohio Statehouse. Sponsored by Republican Ross McGregor and Democrat Nickie Antonio in the House and Senators Michael Skindell and Charleta Tavares in the Senate, EHEA will add to Ohio’s existing law a prohibition on discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in employment, housing, and public accommodations.
EHEA needs your support! Now that the bill has been introduced, we need you to call (most effective) and email your elected officials using our automated system. Ask them to support the freedom to work, to choose where to live, and to access public accommodations here in Ohio!
