Dallas earns perfect Municipal Equality Index score
The City of Dallas has earned a perfect score (100) on the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation’s Municipal Equality Index (MEI). HRC’s index score demonstrates the ways that municipalities can and do support the LGBTQ community in their city.
Dallas received recognition for having single-occupancy and all-gender facilities, transgender-inclusive healthcare benefits and openly LGBTQ elected or appointed municipal leaders
“This demonstrates that the City of Dallas is an inclusive, equitable and welcoming community for the LGBTQ Community,” said Vanessa Gray, Diversity, Inclusion, Culture & Engagement Manager for the City of Dallas. “Our City leaders work tirelessly to ensure our residents and those visiting our city can live, love, work, play and exist without being discriminated against because of who they are.”
The 2019 recognition makes this the 5th consecutive year Dallas has received a score of 100. To view the full report, click here: https://bit.ly/2OPQkK8
