A quick post about today's result at Memphis City Council

Be steadfast in your advocacy my friends. We are moving closer to realizing inclusive workplace protections in Memphis. Today's result was a partial victory. While sexual orientation was added to the proposed non-discrimination ordinance, we must continue to press our Memphis City Council to add gender identity and expression to the proposed non-discrimination ordinance. We must also expose the City of Memphis Charter diversion for what it is - an attempt to stall. Plans are in motion to address today's events. I beg your indulgence as TEP and our allies move to address today's mixed results. Please stay tuned for a more in-depth account of what happened today.
