Stop the Mandate, Vote Yes on 248 Peaceful Protest
Time & Location
About the Event
Join Get Loud Ohio, Moms Against DeWine, and Ohio Advocates for Medical Freedom at the Ohio Statehouse for a peaceful protest in support of Ohio House Bill 248, the Vaccine Choice & Anti-Discrimination Act.
It's now or never! We are joining forces to ensure our legislature knows where we stand on the issue of medical mandates for healthcare workers AND everyone else in the State of Ohio! Come and support us! Wear your medical freedom gear, signs, banners, and flags!
Ohio House Bill 248 would ensure that ALL people in the State of Ohio maintain informed vaccine choice free from coercion. This bill was introduced in April by Rep. Jennifer Gross with fifteen co-sponsors, received five hearings before summer break with nearly a thousand written testimonies of support, and is scheduled for a sixth hearing on the day of this event.
We need your help to ensure that Ohioans maintain vaccine choice and healthcare privacy.
Check back here for further updates as the date approaches.
