After hearing from local residents both for, and against the issue, the St. Joseph County Council voted to approve a human rights ordinance that protects against discrimination on the basis of religion, gender identity, sex, race and disability, among other factors.

The 6-2 vote happened on Tuesday, Feb. 14.

The ordinance states that anyone who feels they’ve been a victim of discrimination can file an official complaint with the Indiana Civil Rights Commission.

Despite the vote, the ordinance must first be approved by county commissioners before it takes effect.

  1. I am so glad we now have an ordinance to uphold already existing laws…What a waste of time, energy and money. Yes, politics as usual! Do any of these people have real jobs?
