The Roeland Park City Council for several weeks has been discussing an anti-discrimination ordinance that would add sexual orientation and gender identity as protected classes when it comes to housing and business services. Those two classes are not protected now by state or federal law.
How do you feel about the proposed ordinance? Do you think discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation are issues in northeast Johnson County? If you don’t live in Roeland Park, would you like to see your city pass an anti-discrimination ordinance similar to the one they are considering?
