Salt Lake County Votes YES to Non-Discrimination

I couldn’t say it better, so from the office of Equality Utah:
——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Salt Lake County now encompasses all of the portions of Utah that provide workplace and housing protections to it's LGBT citizens.

Yesterday Salt Lake County unanimously PASSED TWO Non-discrimination ordinances!

These ordinances protect LGBT residents of unincorporated Salt Lake County from being fired or evicted based on their sexual orientation or gender identity.  These areas include: Copperton, Magna, Millcreek, and Emigration Canyon.  This is a great victory for our community as Salt Lake County is the most populous county in the state.

Equality Utah continues to work with cities and counties across Utah to protect our gay and transgender residents from discrimination in housing and employment. Each time these well crafted ordinances pass – more and more LGBTQ people can live without fear of losing their jobs or their homes just because of who they are.
