|Will Memphis really become a City of Choice that welcomes all people?|
Based on the latest report available from HRC (plus one omission: Nashville, TN), 374 local governments (cities and counties) offer some form of specific workplace protections based on sexual orientation and/or gender identity or expression. Cities and counties have enacted employment non-discrimination ordinances of the kind that TEP is re-introducing tomorrow in Memphis City Council in 45 out of 50 states.
Inclusion and embracing diversity are social and economic goods that strengthen the fabric of American society. Memphis should be the next city to join the mainstream.
