Equality Workshop This Sunday

Posted By on Fri, Jul 17, 2009 at 1:44 PM

With the recent Shelby County Commission victory under their belts, local gay rights advocates are ready to work with the Memphis City Council to pass a citywide non-discrimination ordinance.

The Tennessee Equality Project (TEP), the organizing force behind local LGBT workplace protection efforts, is hosting an informational meeting on Sunday, July 19th at the Memphis Gay and Lesbian Community Center (892 S. Cooper).

TEP members will discuss the scope of the non-discrimination ordinance they'll propose to the council. They'll also give a rundown of how city council makes decisions, while providing tips for how to advocate on behalf of workplace protection.
