Hear attorney Scott Knox discuss his advocacy on behalf of LGBTQ rights in Cincinnati, including his work to repeal Article XII. The Article, passed in 1993, removed discrimination protections based on sexual orientation in Cincinnati. Through the group Citizens to Restore Fairness, Knox and other leaders organized to repeal Article XII, building a coalition and creating a grassroots campaign to spread the word to voters, who repealed the Article in 2004. Join us to learn about this fight for equality, which is featured in HHC’s Humanity Gallery, and consider how we can continue to build a more inclusive Cincinnati.
