Nearly 200 people packed a community room at the Roeland Park Community Center. Council members have debated the language of the ordinance since February and agreed on a final version.
“What this ordinance would do is if a resident, a shopper, an employee here in Roeland Park is discriminated against based on their sexual orientation, gender identity or military status, they would have an avenue to report that discrimination and seek remediation through the courts if necessary,” said Roeland Park Council member Jennifer Gunby.
The ordinance would’ve excluded churches, school districts and non- profits. And despite the agreement from the council on the language, it didn’t pass.
