Not In Our Town Gathering Wraps Up

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

As Not In Our Town's National Leadership Gathering wrapped up, former Billings Police Chief, Wayne Inman, reflected back on how his time as chief during what would spark a national movement, has impacted so many people.

Inman says not everyone was on board with broadcasting the issues Billings was facing back in 1993, but he quieted the opponents by asking them if they wanted Billings to be known as the city that did not stand up to the white supremacist.

In regards to the Non Discrimination Ordinance which has everyone talking, Inman says an NDO was passed in 1993 and if another is needed, he says he throws his support behind it.

Organizers for the event say it was successful and they're happy to see the same passion which ignited the NIOT movement still exists in Billings.
