Ohio Celebrates 3 Transgender Victories! Cleveland, Akron and Summit County Pass Non-Discrimination Ordinances

Last night, Cleveland City Council voted 21 – 0 to protect against discrimination in employment, housing and public accommodations based on gender identity and expression. Akron voted 10 – 2 to do the same based on both sexual orientation and gender identity and Summit County voted 11 – 1 to pass a countywide ordinance protecting against discrimination in employment, housing and public accommodations based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Thanks to all the advocates and coalitions who have worked long and hard to see these much needed protections finally included in municipal law!

We encourage Cleveland, Akron and Summit County citizens to thank their councilpersons. You can find Cleveland councilpersons’ contact information at www.clevelandcitycouncil.org. Akron councilpersons’ contact information at http://www.akroncitycouncil.org/Find_your_Councilperson/ and Summit County councilpersons’ contact information at http://www.co.summit.oh.us/council/index.htm
