Councilwoman Laura Pastor Praises City’s Perfect Score on 2018 Municipal Equality Index Councilwoman Laura Pastor Praises City’s Perfect Score on 2018 Municipal Equality Index <div class="ExternalClassF8D0A4ABDB3C484AB2AEF1615C9F7F05"><p><span style="color:#000000;font-family:arial, sans-serif;font-size:medium;"></span></p><p>"Once again, Phoenix has risen to the occasion and scored perfectly on the Human Rights Campaign's Municipal Equality Index, and I could not be more proud. Our City's commitment to consistent non-discriminatory laws and practices, offering equal benefits and protections to all as an employer, and ensuring that all residents are included in City services and programs is evident in how the HRC has recognized Phoenix as a leader in the State and Country for full LGBTQ equality and justice under the law. As we continue to move forward and be a model of fair treatment, and thoughtful and respectful engagement for other cities to aspire to, let us also set the example locally for our young citizens looking to get involved and make a difference in their community. It is only through the equitable involvement and trauma-free assurance for all that we ourselves can aspire to improve even more and heal wounds from the past; and continue to move the needle towards achieving total non-bias and becoming a City free from all bigotry, hatred, prejudice, and intolerance; for generations to come."<br></p></div>10/8/2018 11:30:00 PMNick Valenzuela602-495-5405
