The City Council of Greenville, Miss., unanimously voted last week in favor of an LGBT-inclusive resolution to the city's anti-discrimination ordinance, making the city the fifth in Mississippi to adopt specific protections against LGBT-based discrimination. "Discrimination in any form has no place in our society," said Councilman Errick D. Simmons, who proposed the legislation. "[I]t is only appropriate that the City of Greenville adopts a public policy of equality, fairness, and non-discrimination for all." Greenville follows immediately behind the city of Magnolia, Miss., which passed its own inclusive resolution last week.
