On Monday, October 7, at 6:00 p.m. Delta Township will be reading their proposed non-discrimination ordinance for the second time. They will take public comment before voting on whether to adopt or reject the ordinance. We need YOU to join us and speak up for equality.
The Board, which has been unanimously supportive of the efforts to pass an ordinance which will prohibit employment, housing, and public accommodations discrimination, has recently received a LOT of pushback from some people who believe their religious freedom is at stake. Let’s be clear, this law will NOT impact anyone’s right to worship (or not worship) as they see fit.
The proposed ordinance has exempted religious institutions from the sexual orientation and gender identity/expression provisions. It DOES NOT interfere with the worship or practice of individuals. In fact, over 35 faith leaders have signed on to a resolution supporting non-discrimination protections here in the Capital Region.
Under this ordinance, individuals will still be free to worship (or not worship) as they see fit, to believe and profess their religious beliefs, and to send their children to religious or secular schools. Faith leaders will still be free to exercise the rights and rites of their profession, and no prayer or liturgy will be altered.
JOIN US at 6:00 p.m. on MONDAY, OCTOBER 7. If you live, work, or visit Delta Township, we need you to SPEAK UP for equality and fairness.
