Stop Anti-Protest Bill
Take action to oppose HB 109, the anti-protest bill
Public protest is baked-in to our history, rights and character as Americans. But our ability to protest in Ohio is under attack. House Bill 109 equates civil disobedience with terrorism and seeks to shut down and bankrupt organizations exercising free speech.
Incredibly, the law specifies that five or more people blocking an intersection could be considered rioting. Even those who provide support to protesters could be prosecuted under the corrupt activities law and their organization could be dissolved and assets seized. The far reaching implications could end up putting a chill on people’s’ willingness to exercise their First Amendment rights.
