URGENT: Ohioans: Your Support for HB 322 Needed before 4/24

Rebecca Surendorff, Co-Chair of Ohioans for Child Protection, asked us to pass along this important message. Since 2019 the parents and grandparents of Ohioans for Child Protection have been asking lawmakers to craft legislation to protect Ohio's children.  

Your help is urgently needed! Ohio House Bill 322 would criminalize grooming a child for the purpose of sexual abuse. This bill was voted out of committee with bipartisan support and with endorsements from the Ohio Prosecuting Attorneys Association and Child USAdvocacy.

What can you do? Call or email your Representatives, as well the House Leadership, before Wednesday, April 24th, and urge them to pass HB 322.
