Detroit City Council Votes to Ban Trans Discrimination
April 9, 2008 by Bryan
After 17 years of trying, Detroit has become the latest city to ban discrimination on the basis of gender identity. City council voted 8-1 to amend the city’s nondiscrimination ordinance which already bars discrimination against lesbians and gays.
City Council President Kenneth Cockrel, Jr. said, “The practices and policies of the City of Detroit should promote a public confidence in the fairness and equal treatment of any and all human beings.”
