On Tuesday (Aug. 24th), the Memphis City Council's personnel committee will discuss the tabled non-discrimination resolution, which protects employees working for companies that contract with the city. That discussion begins at 8 a.m. in the council meeting room on the fifth floor of City Hall.
Later that day, the full council will give the second reading of the ordinance that protects LGBT city workers from discrimination. That meeting begins at 3:30 p.m. in the council chambers on the bottom floor of City Hall. The ordinance must pass a third reading after Tuesday's second reading before becoming city policy.
Anyone who needs to brush up on talking points to prepare for the Sept. 14th third reading should plan to attend the monthly meeting of the Tennessee Equality Project tonight at the Memphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center (892 S. Cooper). The meeting will double as an advocacy workshop for the non-discrimination ordinance. It begins at 6 p.m.
