Nondiscrimination Ordinance Rally

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

A group of community members rallied to support the possible nondiscrimination ordinance.

If it goes through, the ordinance would prevent discrimination against members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender community for housing or employment. Event organizers say they want the Billings City Council to give people the chance to vote on the issue.

"I think most importantly, it's time. 20 years ago this community stood up and said no to intolerance,” said Eran Thompson with Not In Our Town Billings. “And we've got the exact opportunity now to pass the nondiscrimination ordinance."

Billings city council will hold a public hearing Monday during their meeting to decide whether to rescind the initiative to create a nondiscrimination ordinance. Public comments will be limited to three minutes.
