About Us

Equality Ohio is a nonprofit that identifies and transforms systems and institutions so LGBTQ+ Ohioans can fully access legal and lived equality. The organization leads LGBTQ+ related advocacy at the Ohio statehouse and supports localities and communities through its field organizing program. Recognizing the unique challenges that LGBTQ+ Ohioans face in the legal system, Equality Ohio has established a Legal Clinic to assist low income LGBTQ+ Ohioans in several areas of civil law.
