2020 Census

The 2020 Census determines critical funding for programs that support our communities, and LGBTQ people specifically. Moreover, this count ensures our elected leaders at all levels of government are representing roughly the same number of people. Even though the Census does not explicitly ask about our sexual orientation and gender identity, it is still vital for LGBTQ people to be counted. Please pledge to be counted and encourage others in our community are too.

Ensure you're counted at hrc.im/2020Census

Non-Discrimination Protections 

We mobilized, phone banked and held our legislators accountable -- causing the Ohio Fairness Act to receive its first hearing in the Ohio State House. Now, we need to urge our leaders to for a second hearing. 

We need 150 more emails to local leaders to make a difference. Join us to protect countless LGBTQ Ohioans in employment, housing and public services.
