If I lived close to you, Bella and I would proudly stand beside you! BSL is all over Ohio as well. They are actually completely illegal to own in some counties. The neighboring county next to mine actually, so I feel your pain and anxiety. Everyday I walk Bella and dogs bark at her and she ignores them. I wish the BSL people and other Pit Bull haters could follow Bella and I on our walks and witness a true family pet instead of what the media portrays our breed to be.
Good luck at the charity! Hopefully you can change at least one mind!
