LGBT Hosts Bozeman Equality Event

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

Civil rights leaders continue to fight for equality in the city of Bozeman.

One of three events will be held in Bozeman on Wednesday to address the reasons why a non-discrimination ordinance should go into effect in Bozeman.

City commissioners have added the non-discrimination ordinance to their list of goals for the next two years.

Currently, Missoula and Helena have passed similar ordinances to protect the LGBT community. Supporters are hoping these events will better inform the public of how a city ordinance will benefit the entire Bozeman community.

"We're looking forward to working with city officials as they begin debating this issue," said Jamee Greer, Montana Human Rights Network. "We've been working on this issue statewide since 1991 and we've been up against a hostile environment in Helena. This is a chance for the city to step up where they state as failed to act."

The event will take place on Wednesday at the Bozeman Public library beginning at 7 p.m.
