Listen to what Magnolia Mayor Anthony Witherspoon had to say after his city passed a non-discrimination ordinance.
Now, we need your help in securing civil rights protections for everyone in Hattiesburg. Leadership at the state level has made clear that not everyone deserves equal rights. Hattiesburg can send another message and say all its residents will be treated with dignity and fairness. Help us enact a non-discrimination ordinance.
The ACLU of Mississippi and the Spectrum Center, as part of the We Are All Mississippi Coalition, have been pushing for an NDO in Hattiesburg for more than a year. An NDO works in two ways. It codifies the basic human right that everyone deserves to be treated equally by providing protections against discrimination. Additionally, it allows victims of discrimination to avoid costly federal court litigation.
True hospitality sees everyone as equal.
