HaleStormOhio has been created in response to the unlawful termination of Ms. Carla Hale from the Columbus Catholic Diocese. Through peaceful action, HaleStormOhio seeks to find effective resolution and justice through the following outcomes:
- Reinstatement of Ms. Hale to her previous post.

We are against dangerous methods of action, hate speech or illegal measures of organization of any kind. We are a group dedicated to the pursuit of fairness and equality and the restoration of a community built upon tolerance, acceptance and fidelity towards one another.
Since the beginning of our campaign, thousands have joined in support all across the nation. We are incredibly proud of the kindness and caring each supporter has shown every other, and every day, our petition’s signature count grows as news of our efforts spreads even farther. For every one of us that steps forward and announces that we will not tolerate discrimination, the impact of our message grows, and with time we will always be able to repeat what we announced at the very beginning: we will not go away.
