City Council in Savannah, Georgia Unanimously Votes for LGBT Non-Discrimination ProtectionsBy Adam Polaski • December 10, 2015 • 6:23 pm
Today, December 10, the City Council in Savannah, Georgia voted unanimously to extend employment non-discrimination protections to LGBT city employees and applicants seeking employment.
Georgia Equality Executive Director Jeff Graham said today:
Cities all across our nation and state understand that these types of employment protections are simply the right thing to do. Measures like the one passed in Savannah today make it clear to city employees that the city of Savannah wants to attract and retain the best employees without regard to sexual orientation or gender identity. A special thanks is due to Alderman Van Johnson II for his leadership on this important ordinance. We at Georgia Equality look forward to continuing to work with Alderman Johnson and the rest of the City Council to make sure that LGBT citizens and visitors in Savannah feel protected and welcome in all aspects of their lives.
