#JaxHRO To Be Withdrawn; Community Rally Taking Place Thursday

Like many in the community, Equality Florida is reacting to recent news that Councilman Tommy Hazouri will move to withdraw his own human rights ordinance bill, 2016-002 at the City Council meeting this Thursday. This is a setback to be sure, but by no means a defeat. Councilman Hazouri has been a steadfast champion for equality, and we know that he remains committed to passing a fully-inclusive amendment to our human rights ordinance. He, along with Aaron Bowman and Jim Love, have been great leaders on this issue and show no signs of abandoning this work.

NEWS RELEASE: Mayor Curry signs Executive Order prohibiting discrimination; Councilman Jim Love co-sponsors HRO

Mayor Lenny Curry has announced an Executive Order that prohibits discrimination in the City of Jacksonville based on sexual orientation, gender identity and expression. The order will cover employment by the city and will require contractors to also have policies in place.

JAX UPDATE: LGBT-inclusive HRO has been officially introduced!
