"The Overland Park City Council passed an ordinance Monday night banning discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. The move followed a hearing on the new non-discrimination measure in September that drew more than 50 people to a city community development committee meeting — and little opposition. Council members adopted the ordinance on 10-1 vote. Backers of the proposal took the Overland Park action as a landmark development."
SIMILAR ORDINANCE IN KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI. NOW TO OVERLAND PARK, WHERE NON-DISCRIMINATION ORDINANCE WAS JUST PASSED BY THE CITY COUNCIL. THE MEASURE IS DESIGNED TO PROVIDE LEGAL PROTECTIONS FOR THE LGBTQ-PLUS COMMUNITY. THE MAYOR SAYS IT DOESN'T SOLVE THE ENTIRE PROBLEMS BUT ITS A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.
