In response to a disturbing series of physical and verbal attacks on gays that have recently occurred in the City of Covington, The Mayor, City Commissioners, City Officials, and other community leaders will hold a Press Conference on Tuesday, August 24, 2010 at 2:00 pm at Covington City Hall, 638 Madison Avenue, First Floor Commission Chambers, Covington, Kentucky 41011, where they will read a Resolution reaffirming the City’s support of our Human Rights Ordinance passed in 2003.
§37.01 DECLARATION OF POLICY.
The city desires to implement a policy to protect all individuals within the city from discrimination in certain contexts because of disability, age, sex, race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, familial status, marital and/or parental status and place of birth. Certain practices must be prohibited within the areas of employment, housing, public accommodations, resort or amusement as necessary to protect an individual’s personal dignity and insure freedom from humiliation; to make available to the city all full productive capacities; to secure the city against strife and unrest which would menace its democratic institutions; and to preserve the public safety, health, and general welfare.
We wish the City of Covington all the best in ending this despicable deplorable conduct occurring in our community.
