Organization kicks off state-wide UNITY Pledge in support of LGBT community

Business owners and individuals encouraged to stand up for diversity

ONE Community official kicked off the UNITY Pledge campaign with a press conference with Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton on Friday.

“The costs of discrimination are too high.  Not just the human toll, especially bullying and teen suicide, but the economic costs.  The UNITY Pledge shows that Arizona businesses are on the right side of history and economics.  If our region wants to remain competitive in the global economy, discrimination against the LGBT community, against anyone, has to stop.  Arizona businesses get it,” states Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton.  Read more »

Statement from Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton Regarding Valley Metro

Mayor Stanton has made a statement regarding Valley Metro concerns:

You may have heard recently concerns that RPTA “Valley Metro” took action that impeded the ability of people with HIV to receive a reduced-fare pass. As a member of the RPTA Board, I wanted to clarify that this was not the case and no one with HIV who applied for reduced fare was turned away. At today’s RPTA Board Meeting this was not only clarified, but staff will go the extra mile to ensure an HIV subheading under ‘chronic debilitative condition’ is listed to eliminate any confusion that might have existed.

Stanton urges ordinance to outlaw discrimination vs. gays

Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton's aides and a group of attorneys are working to draft ordinances that could outlaw discrimination against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender residents.

The aides and attorneys believe that if rewritten, city laws would also give victims of such discrimination in restaurants and other businesses an opportunity to file complaints with the city's Equal Opportunity Department for investigation -- an option they currently do not have.

The effort comes as the Sheraton Phoenix Downtown Hotel near Van Buren and Third streets tries to recover from threats of boycott by the gay community over a decision by the manager of the hotel's District American Kitchen & Wine Bar to expel a lesbian couple in late February. Read more »
