South Bend: Amendment would protect rights of all



very now and then, ordinary people have the opportunity to do extraordinary things. The South Bend Common Council will have that opportunity on Monday.

That is the day that the council can vote to include sexual orientation and gender identity as a factor of diversity as a reason to report incidents of discrimination to the South Bend Human Rights Commission. The commission can then investigate to see if there is any legitimacy to the claim. As it stands presently, people cannot report incidents of discrimination based on those two factors.

This amendment will protect all people.
