We're really excited about the launch of the new campaign for an LGBT-inclusive nondiscrimination ordinance in Helena.
The kickoff event is tonight at Hub Coffee on Last Chance Gulch, and we hope you will be there to show your support for a city where no one is discriminated against in terms of employment, housing or public accommodations because of his or her sexual orientation or gender identity.
Missoula enacted its nondiscrimination ordinance last year. It was the first city in the state to do so. The results have been amazing. All people are now protected by the city. Naysayers who predicted problems (remember the bathroom battles?) have been proven wrong.
We're so ready for Helena to pass a similar measure and are excited to be working with the Montana Human Rights Network (which is spearheading the campaign and hosting tonight's event), the Pride Foundation, Montana Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, Montana Safe Schools Coalition and many more organizations on this important effort.
Fair is Fair in Helena.
