Keep Shreveport Fair!

be fair shreveportThis past December Shreveport made history by becoming the second city in Louisiana that provides protections in employment, housing and accommodations, which includes protections for sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression. To top that off, the vote by the Shreveport City Council passed the Fairness Ordinance in a 6-1 vote.

Now the one dissenting vote, Councilmember Ron Webb, is attempting to legalize discrimination by proposing a repeal of the Shreveport Fairness Ordinance. Do not let him bully his discriminatory repeal into a community that overwhelmingly supports equality and fairness — our civic leaders, people of faith, the business community and citizens of Shreveport have come out in favor of Keeping Shreveport Fair!

If you live in Shreveport, let your City Council know that you support fairness by voting against repeal. Send them a positive and encouraging email message here — passage of the Fairness Ordinance got national attention branding Shreveport as forward-looking and welcoming to all!

Every step forward – like the one in Shreveport – is one step closer to a fairer and more equal state.

With Equality for All,

SarahJane Brady
Executive Director, Forum for Equality
