Improving Black Maternal Health

Ohio Legislative Black Caucus President Stephanie Howse’s legislation to address racial disparities and improve prenatal and maternal health outcomes is now heading to the governor’s desk for his signature.

“I am committed to changing the narrative around health disparities and death among mothers in Ohio,” said Howse, co-founder of the Ohio Black Maternal Health Caucus. “I am pleased with the passage of House Bill 11 and the impact it will have on future generations. There is still more work to be done, but we are prepared to continue to fight for our mothers and babies!”

Support the Ohio Fairness Act

In a 6-3 decision with Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Neil Gorsuch joining the U.S. Supreme Court’s liberal justices, the court this week ruled that federal civil rights laws protect LGBTQ Americans from workplace discrimination.

This is a huge win, but there is still work to be done. State Sen. Nickie Antonio sponsored the Ohio Fairness Act, which would outlaw all discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. This is critical legislation for the LGBTQ+ community in Ohio. Take a minute to urge your legislators to support the Ohio Fairness Act.
