Registration for Lobby Day for Equality 2009 is now open

From Equality Ohio:

For the last three years, HUNDREDS of Ohioans have visited their elected officials to talk with them about equal rights for ALL Ohioans regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity. Mothers, fathers, families, clergy members, students - straight and gay, young and old - they took a day off from school or work to come to Columbus for Lobby Day.

The Equal Housing and Employment Act (EHEA) will be reintroduced in the Ohio House of Representatives soon and this is the best chance ever for it to pass. When it passes, this will be the first pro-equality bill ever enacted at the state level in Ohio. But make no mistake, the EHEA will not pass if we don’t work for it. Bring your story to the Ohio Statehouse on May 13th to make a difference.

You can register here. Facebook event page is here (note that an RSVP at the facebook page will not register you - you must go to the previously linked site).
