Camp Hill Borough Council Wednesday night unanimously approved the advertisement of a nondiscrimination ordinance.
A room full of supporters at the meeting handed out stickers supporting the LGBTQ community, which the ordinance would protect.
The proposed ordinance that would establish a local human relations commission to help investigate and settle disputes over discrimination.
The ordinance would provide protections against discrimination in areas like housing, employment and use of public accommodations to people based on race, gender, veteran status and a host of other aspects protected by federal and state law.
The ordinance would also extend those protections to people based on sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, which are not afforded the same protections under state and federal law.
There will be a vote next month.
