Tierramarie Lewis had the drive to be one of the LGBT Center of Greater Cleveland’s success stories. She came to Cleveland for a fresh start last year, but on June 12, police responding to a gunshot report found Lewis face down on the ground.

HB527 would have barred trans students in Ohio from competing as their true selves. The bill failed to advance forward in the Statehouse last year, but that original bill is not truly dead.
