All people have the right to be treated with dignity and respect. You should never be discriminated against, no matter your sexual orientation or gender identity. Cincinnati has come a long way in promoting equality, but we need to be proactive about protecting it.
We must stand up for real solutions to promote gender equality and protect women’s rights.
- Close the gender pay gap by promoting transparency across our city’s economy
- Advocate for paid maternity leave and leave to take care of sick family members
- Stand with Planned Parenthood to defend women’s rights to health and reproductive care
- Promote gender equity by breaking down social, economic, and legal barriers
Although Cincinnati received a 100 percent score for equality, we still have room to grow towards becoming a more inclusive and welcoming city.
- Provide additional government services to our transgender citizens
- Increase city support for LGBT+ citizens experiencing homelessness
- Improve city efforts to assist LGBT+ elderly
- Appoint city liaisons to ensure equality for LGBT+ youth in public schools
- Improve access to city buildings for people with service animals
- Ensure compliance with federal disability standards (ADA, FHA, ANSI, etc.) and city codes
- Advocate for the advancement of disability rights at local, state and national levels
- Empower persons with disabilities to participate in legislative decisions to protect their rights
