Final Reading for Nondiscrimination Ordinance



The Memphis City Council will vote today on whether to implement an amendment to the city's nondiscrimination ordinance that offers job protections for gay city employees.

The council approved the language of the amendment last month, but legal questions arose as to whether or not such an amendment was allowed under the city charter.

The Tennessee Equality Project is urging advocates to wear purple and arrive at the council meeting by 2:30 p.m. to ensure they will fill up the front rows. The meeting begins at 3:30 p.m.
