County Ordinance Update

It is a mess. I've posted so many places I cannot think anymore. Please go to for great analysis by the ACLU to understand what a freaking quagmire our County Council has created.

Good news is you can still do something. Please put in a call to the man who would be Governor and explain that you do most decidedly not want Allegheny County to pass legislation that would permit faith communities, funded by the County, to legally discriminate against African-Americans, women, disabled persons and people who are Jewish.

Yes, you read that right. Go read the analysis for more details.

Please call Dan and ask them to restore the original language before we lose even more LGBTQ resources fighting court battles to bring us back from the 1950's to the 1980's. Really. Aren't you tired of this? 412-350-6500.
