Take Action


Get Involved

The best way to help defeat the proposed amendment is to contact your local parish or diocese and offer to support their efforts. 

Parish Support: 
It is suggested that each parish have 2-3 volunteers to help implement the "Protect Them Both" campaign, including: 

  • Distributing, Restocking, & Hanging Campaign Materials 
  • Facilitate Announcements (& Video Viewing if Possible) for Masses
  • Hold Events or Table After Masses (and at Parish festival) for Campaign Info & Voter Registration
  • Coordinate Brief Presentations to Parish Ministries about Campaign
  • Any Other Creative Ideas to Spread the Word!

Diocesan Support:
Diocesan Respect Life Offices across Ohio will be leading local efforts to encourage Catholics to unite in prayer, learn more about the gravity of the proposed amendment, and, most importantly, to Vote No in November. Use the contact list provided here to reach out to your local Respect Life Office and see how you can help.
