Milwaukee County Gender Discrimination Resolution

VCY America has been reporting on a resolution that would expand "Milwaukee County’s non-discrimination policy to ensure equal opportunity to all persons from all segments of Milwaukee County in contracting, employment, and promotional opportunity and equal access to public services." It would apply to all Milwaukee County property including Mitchell International Airport, and would include such services as public restrooms.

The resolution (file # 14-332) twas introduced quietly on April 3, 2014, and was sent to the Judiciary, Safety and General Services Committee. That committee met on April 10, 2014, and voted unanimously to send it to the full board and recommend its adoption. The only person making comments at that meeting was a representative of "Fair Wisconsin", which is an LGBT advocacy group.

The full Milwaukee County Board meets Thursday, April 24, at 9:30am and this resolution/ordinance is on the agenda. The agenda was not available to the public until finally it was posted on the website of the Milwaukee County Board, late on Tuesday, April 22. It includes links to the audio above, and to the full text of the resolution which is a .pdf file.
