Ban LGBTQ Workplace Discrimination

Target: Representative Louis Blessing III, Chairman of the Government Accountability and Oversight Committee

Goal: Ban workplace discrimination against members of the LGBTQ community.

Representatives in Ohio are working to ban workplace discrimination against the LGBTQ community, but the proposed bill still needs support. More than 200 businesses are supporting Democratic State Representative Nickie Antonio’s civil rights legislation; however, the bill still needs Republican support.

Currently, nondiscrimination laws do not protect members of the LGBTQ community from workplace discrimination. LGBTQ employees can be fired or not even hired simply for their sexual orientation or identity.

Major companies, including AT&T and General Electric, are backing this legislation. However, for the legislation to pass, it still must garner Republican support. Sign the petition and demand that Republicans in the state legislature vote for this bill so that everyone in the workplace, regardless of their sexual orientation, can be treated fairly.


Dear Representative Blessing,

Your fellow state representative, Representative Nickie Antonio, is working to enact legislation that would ban workplace discrimination against the LGBTQ community. More than 200 companies support this legislation. However, despite your leadership role in the state’s Government Accountability and Oversight Committee, you have not said a word about this legislation. In fact, you have ignored it.

No one should be fired, or denied the opportunity for employment, simply due to their sexual orientation. Everyone deserves to be treated fairly and equally in their place of work. I demand that you and your fellow Republicans show support for this legislation, which will help the LGBTQ community of Ohio.
