  • Volunteers Needed: Voter Education Materials for Yes on 10!

    Join us as we help distribute voter educational material with Inclusive Golf Manor and Equality Ohio! The opposition's door hangers were misleading and confusing to voters. We need to put out a second round of door hangers with additional information. This should be shorter than the first round, and we won't be writing out messages this time around.

    EVENT DETAILS
    We will be helping to drop off door hangers to voters in Golf Manor. The door hangers provide information to the voters on Issue 10, a local fully inclusive nondiscrimination ordinance that is advocating for a welcoming community that treats everyone fairly. We will not be door-to-door canvassing due to COVID, simply dropping off the door hangers.

    ABOUT THE ISSUE
    The village council passed this ordinance in January. A local religious community who opposed the ordinance used the referendum process to get this issue on the ballot to allow the voters to decided. They oppose the ordinance because they think they should be completely exempt from the nondiscrimination ordinance.

    BALLOT LANGUAGE
    "The Ordinance prohibits housing discrimination, discriminatory practices relating to employment, discriminatory practices relating to public accommodations, and discriminatory practices relating to educational institutions for Protected Classes such as age, race, color, religion, ethnicity, national origin, ancestry, disability, marital status, family status, military status, sex, gender identity or expression, or sexual orientation. The Ordinance establishes a Human Rights Commission within the Village and grants authority to the Human Rights Commission to receive complaints for violation of the Ordinance and the authority to investigate, reconcile or adjudicate those complaints including the right to assess a civil penalty of five hundred dollars ($500). Each day upon which a continuing violation occurs shall constitute a new and separate violation. Certain exemptions are recognized within the Ordinance as it applies to religious or denominational corporations, institutions, or associations."
