LGBT Discrimination in Johnson County?


Roeland Park City Council Ward 3 Councilmember Megan England will be speaking at Gay Christian Fellowship this Tuesday evening:

Tuesday, May 13, 2014
Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church
11100 College Boulevard
Overland Park, KS 66210
Room 26

Gay Christian Fellowship is for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) people and those who love us. As an outreach to many who have been wounded by church doctrine in other places, this group will emphasize the welcoming, inclusive love of God as expressed in the gospels and lived at Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church. Please invite friends who would be blessed by this experience of Grace.

Please join us for the usual food, faith, and fellowship, but also to listen to special guest Councilmember England speak about this important issue in the community:

On June 16th the Roeland Park City Council is scheduled to vote on an ordinance to "add sexual orientation and gender identity to the protected classes."

For several weeks this ordinance has been on the agenda of the Roeland Park City Council, and it has generated considerable public debate. At one of the early meetings Equality Kansas made a presentation favoring the ordinance, and last Monday an attorney who is in litigation in the State of Washington for the Alliance Defending Freedom came to speak against it.

We are aware that other municipalities are closely watching the process in Roeland Park.

Come join us and be informed!
