08.17.17 - Legislation Pushes Lawmakers To Officially Denounce Hate In Ohio, Affirm White Supremacist Groups As Terrorist Organizations

 

State Rep. David J. Leland (D-Columbus) today announced he is introducing legislation pushing Ohio lawmakers to officially denounce white nationalists and neo-Nazis and recognize white supremacist groups as terrorist organizations in Ohio.

“We have a responsibility as keepers of the public trust to stand against violent hate, bigotry and racism in our society and to fight back against domestic terrorism that seeks to threaten our very way of life as Americans,” said Leland. “It’s on us as elected officials to ensure tyranny and oppression have no place in a free and democratic society.”

 
 

07.24.17 - State Legislators Urge Ohio To Commit To Paris Climate Agreement

 

State Reps. Michele Lepore-Hagan (D-Youngstown) and David Leland (D-Columbus) today introduced legislation urging fellow Ohio House members to affirm the state’s commitment to the international Paris Agreement. The lawmakers’ action follows recent news out of Washington that the United States will withdraw from the historic climate change pact, joining Syria and Nicaragua as the only nations not participating.  

“The Paris Agreement delivers a powerful signal that the nations of the world are committed to curbing emissions and accelerating the transition to a low-carbon, cleaner energy economy,” said Leland. “In addition, the agreement is a clarion call for all to embrace the biggest job creating opportunity of this century.”

State Reps.

The lawmakers’ action follows recent news out of Washington that the United States will withdraw from the historic climate change pact, joining Syria and Nicaragua as the only nations not participating. 

“Instead of taking the global back seat on charting a sustainable and secure energy future, Ohio and our nation should be a driving force for the good-paying jobs and economic growth that come with advanced energy development and manufacturing,” said Lepore-Hagan. “We can’t afford to let other nations lead while we fall behind and miss out on the good jobs, growth and national security that come from common sense renewable energy policy.”

 
 

07.14.17 - Leland Represents Ohio In National Call To Keep Anti-Semitism Envoy At State Department

 

State Rep. David Leland (D-Columbus) recently joined Jewish lawmakers from across the country in urging President Donald Trump to appoint and adequately fund a Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat anti-Semitism. The U.S. State Department position, created in 2004 with bipartisan congressional support, is currently vacant following the transition in presidential administrations. 

Recent news reports indicated that the State Department’s anti-Semitism office would be entirely unstaffed as of July 1, 2017. 

“At a time when we have witnessed a rise in anti-Semitism both abroad and even here at home, I believe it is critical that the United States take the lead in combatting insidious acts of prejudice and hate,” said Leland. “Filling this important State Department post will send a clear message to the international community that the United States believes anti-Semitism and other acts of discrimination cannot and will not be tolerated.”
