Boise Passes Non-Discrimination Ordinance

Post submitted by Dan Rafter, Former HRC Associate Director of Communications

The Boise City Council passed an inclusive non-discrimination ordinance last night that makes it illegal to discriminate against LGBT people in the workplace, housing, or public places based on their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Every single council member voted in favor of the bill.

The ordinance takes effect January 1. Check out a local news report on the historic vote, which includes moving comments from city council members:
