HSC and Members Participate in Stonewall Columbus’ PRIDE 2023

The Human Service Chamber was proud to lead a contingent of our staff and members in this year’s Pride parade.

There were over 700,000 people in attendance at this year’s events, with tremendous thanks owed to our members at Stonewall Columbus for their Herculean work in hosting this event for our community.

We remain troubled that this event stands in stark contrast to the weaponization of government occurring in Ohio’s Statehouse against the very community of people that Pride brings together. We must all stand together against legislation that dehumanizes any Ohioan because of who they are.
