Dare to Dream’s 500th Post

We are pleased that our 500th post is a happy one for Northeast Ohio Gay residents. Today we received the following email which we want to share.

Inclusive Non-Discrimination Clause Passes in 3 Ohio Cities The Ohio-Meadville District applauds and support Cleveland, Akron and Summit County, OH.

Equality Ohio posted this announcement to it’s email list earlier today: 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 http://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

    Now, we just need to educate them on the “marriage” issue.
