  • Equality & Fairness: Protecting the LGBTQ+ Community from Discrimination

    This event is hosted by Equality Ohio and ACLU Ohio. Although this is Ohio focused, the topics are relevant to other states, including Kentucky. The federal Equality Act, Bostock Decision and HUD directive apply to all of us. Kentucky has a state-wide bill for Fairness that is comparable to the Ohio Fairness Act.

    "Last week, the Equality Act passed the House of Representatives. The Ohio Fairness Act will be introduced soon in the Ohio Legislature. The Biden Administration has issued executive orders implementing Bostock.
    What does all this mean for LGBTQ+ Ohioans who want to live, work, and play without the threat of discrimination and harassment?

    Join us for a panel discussion featuring Equality Ohio, TransOhio, ACLU & HRC. We'll break down each of the acts, the executive orders, and the Bostock decision."
