Ask Nashville's Metro Development and Housing Agency to Expand Non-Discrimination Statement

This petition made change with 150 supporters!


Nashville's Metro Development and Housing Agency works to create affordable housing opportunities for residents of Nashville, as well as build a more vibrant downtown area for the city. The Agency currently has a pretty exhaustive non-discrimination policy, which reads: "The Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency (MDHA) does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, sex, color, national origin, religion, disability or any other legally protected status in admission to, access to, or operations of its programs, services, or activities."

But the Agency currently includes no discrimination protections for sexual orientation or gender identity. And that's something the Mayor of Nashville, Karl Dean, would like to see change.

Send the Metro Development and Housing Agency a message that in order for Nashville to be a truly inclusive city, agencies like theirs should step up to the plate and make sure that all forms of discrimination, including discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, are rooted out.
