Phoenix Receives High Score for Equality 4 Years in a Row - News ConferencePhoenix’s score in the HRC Foundation’s 2016 Municipal Equality Index (MEI), the only nationwide rating system of LGBTQ inclusion in municipal law and policy, will be announced at the event. Also highlighted will be historic progress being made across the 506 cities included in the survey, even in places where anti-LGBTQ state elected officials have sought to undermine local efforts to guarantee equality for all. Phoenix was chosen for the event because of its high score on the MEI, despite being located in a state without fully inclusive non-discrimination protections. The city will also offer transgender-inclusive health benefits to all city employees starting in 2017. Cities rated in the MEI are assessed on their LGBTQ-inclusive policies and practices, including non-discrimination laws; municipal employment policies, including transgender-inclusive insurance coverage and non-discrimination requirements for contractors; inclusiveness of city services; law enforcement, including hate crimes reporting; and municipal leadership on matters of equality. The 2016 Municipal Equality Index (MEI) will be released Monday morning at http://www.hrc.org/mei
