ACTION ALERT: Send a Letter to the Hillsborough County Commission
Yesterday by a vote of 4 to 3, the Hillsborough County Commission failed to extend non-discrimination protections to their lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) employees. The proposed change would have modified the internal personnel policy, not amend to the county Human Rights Ordinance. Commissioners Beckner, White and Ferlita voted to protect all employees while Commissioners Hagan, Higginbotham, Sharp, and Norman opposed such protections.
In the wake of yesterday's vote, Equality Florida is asking everyone to send a message to the Hillsborough County Commissioners thanking Commissioners Kevin Beckner,
