Make sure you're ready for Election Day.

Without comprehensive equal rights legislation at the federal level, LGBTQ people are subject to an inconsistent patchwork of legal protections in their states and local communities. This leaves millions of our most marginalized people at risk of potential discrimination at work and in their daily lives.

That’s why The Human Rights Campaign fights for LGBTQ equality alongside lawmakers at the local and state levels across the country. Find out what HRC is doing in Ohio and how you can help secure equal rights for all of its LGBTQ citizens.
