Mississippi’s capital and largest city has joined 7 other cities in Mississippi to affirm equality and contributions of the LGBT community. In a 3-1 vote, the city council passed the resolution that has been an objective of the Human Rights Campaign’s statewide initiative.
Jackson’s resolution follows Bay St. Louis and Waveland which adopted “diversity resolutions” in May. Starkville, Hattiesburg, Greenville, Magnolia, and Oxford are the other cities that have taken similar actions.
