A Dozen Cities Now Approve Fairness Ordinance

Aug 7, 2019

A Northern Kentucky city has become the 12th in Kentucky to pass a law protecting the LGBTQ population from discrimination in housing, employment, and public accommodations. In a unanimous vote this week, Dayton city leaders approved a so-called fairness ordinance. Mayor Ben Baker urged members of the General Assembly to pass a statewide law extending civil rights protections to the LGBTQ community. Next year will mark 20 years since legislation was introduced in the General Assembly.
