BOONE COUNTY, Ind. (April 13, 2015) – Whitestown town councilors will introduce and discuss a new human rights ordinance at their Town Council Meeting Tuesday, April 14. The ordinance would make Whitestown possibly the first community within the “donut” counties outside Indianapolis to designate LGBT citizens as a protected class.

The councilors say their goal is to protect LGBT residents against discrimination. The ordinance states that no individual should be discriminated against based upon their individual sex, race, color, national origin, religion, beliefs, disability, age, or sexual orientation.

The first reading will happen at 7 p.m. at the Whitestown Municipal Complex.
