Non-Discrimination Ordinance Is Back



The Memphis City Council will again consider an employment non-discrimination ordinance that will include protections for sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.

The ordinance will be discussed Tuesday morning (Oct. 26th) at 8:30 a.m. in the council's personnel committee in room 514 at City Hall. The Tennessee Equality Project (TEP) is asking ordinance supporters to arrive at 7:30 a.m.

The same non-discrimination ordinance was pulled from the council agenda earlier this year at the request of TEP, citing concerns about the ordinance not getting a fair hearing.
