(KCPW News) Salt Lake City is crafting a nondiscrimination ordinance that would create the first protections in the state prohibiting discrimination against gay and transgender people. But there’s a lot it wouldn’t be able to do, including protect people from the city’s most common form of discrimination: racism. KCPW’s Elizabeth Ziegler reports:
The Salt Lake City Human Rights Commission also recommends increasing funding for local diversity and human rights programs, cooperating with international human rights projects and creating a system for collecting and addressing discrimination claims. These would also require city council approval.
