Listen to this article

Harrisville, Utah, has become the 14 locality in Utah to pass an ordinance protecting people from being discriminated against because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. The city council voted unanimously to pass Ordinance 448, Employment and Housing Nondiscrimination, presented by Harrisville Human Resource Manager Pamela Crosbie.

With Harrisville, a quarter of Utah’s population is now protected by such ordinances at the city and county levels. A bill, co-sponsored by Rep. Derek Brown, R-Cottonwood Heights, and Sen. Ben McAdams, D-Salt Lake City, has been introduced in the Utah State Legislature to extend such protections statewide.
