Equality Toledo Pantry Coordinator

Equality Toledo

Equality Toledo is a Toledo-based nonprofit organization that began as a response to the passage of Ohio’s Issue One amendment in November 2004, which made it unconstitutional for the state to perform or recognize same-sex marriages or civil unions. The founding members were actively involved in opposing Issue One and educating communities about the consequences of its passage. Despite the diligent efforts of concerned citizens, the Issue One amendment became Article 15, Section 11 of the Ohio Constitution. The amendment passed because of the lack of an effective statewide coalition in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and its allies. ET was formed to address this deficiency. Since that time a lot has been accomplished for the LGBTQ communities in the Greater Toledo Area, including the Supreme Court ruling in favor of marriage equality on June 26, 2015. However, there is still work to be accomplished, therefore We remain dedicated to eliminating discrimination in our region on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, through education, activism and other anti-defamation efforts.
