Fayetteville Civil Rights Measure Vilified

Jacqueline Froelich

Christian conservatives swamped a Fayetteville city council meeting to protest a proposed civil rights ordinance that would ban discrimination in employment, housing and public accommodations based on race, ethnicity, age, religion, and gender--as well as gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation. As Jacqueline Froelich reports, it would be the first such ordinance on the books in Arkansas.
