Greg Schultz, former Obama for America (OFA) State Director, has joined FreedomOhio’s Executive Committee to help pass the Freedom to Marry and Religious Freedom Amendment.


“Every adult should be permitted to marry the one he or she loves. As a member of the FreedomOhio Executive Committee, I look forward to collaborating with LGBT, Civil Rights, faith and business leaders to ensure we pass this vital Freedom to Marry and Religious Freedom Amendment,” Schultz said


Ben Deutschle, Chairman of FreedomOhio’s Executive Committee, said, “Greg Schultz brings extensive statewide organizing skills and contacts to our movement and his strategic vision and campaign experience will be invaluable in our efforts to end marriage discrimination in Ohio.”


Schultz served as state director for Obama for America for President Barack Obama’s re-election in 2012 and he also worked to overturn House Bill 194, the legislative effort to restrict early voting hours and locations.


Schultz recently was named Vice-President of Business Forward, a non-profit representing many of America’s largest and most respected companies, to identify, recruit and brief small business owners, venture capitalists, and entrepreneurs about meaningful ways to participate in policy debates.


FreedomOhio is the campaign committee that is collecting signatures to place the Freedom to Marry and Religious Freedom Amendment before voters. The amendment would end marriage discrimination in Ohio while ensuring religious institutions are free to choose to recognize and perform same-gender marriages or not.
