Non-Discrimination Ordinance Passes First Reading

Posted By on Wed, Nov 10, 2010 at 2:21 PM

On Tuesday, the Memphis City Council passed the non-discrimination ordinance protecting LGBT city workers on the first reading as part of its consent agenda. The vote was 7-2 with two abstentions.

The council also approved a resolution calling for the city's human resources department to conduct a discrimination study in every city division. For more information on the study, check out my story from the Memphis Flyer.

The second reading of the ordinance should take place on November 23rd, but the third reading will be held up until the discrimination ordinance is complete.
