Eugene to Hold Input Session on Gender Idntity Code Revisions

The Eugene Human Rights Commission invites community members to an information session regarding a proposal to add protections based on gender identity to the city's anti-discrimination code.

The session will be facilitated in the Council Chamber by Human Rights Commissioners and Gender Identity Work Group members and will include an overview of proposed code language, explanation of the public process for adopting code changes, a question and answer session and an opportunity for public input.

Gender Identity proposed code revisions are currently being considered by an ad hoc committee of the Eugene Human Rights Commission. The group will forward its recommendations to the Human Rights Commission, which will consider public input before forwarding its recommendations for the Eugene City Council.

Gender Identity is defined in the proposed code revisions as "a person's actual or perceived sex, including a person's identity appearance, expression or behavior, whether or not that identity, appearance, expression or behavior is different from that traditionally associated with the person's sex at birth." The code revisions would provide protections based on gender identity in places of employment, housing, and public accommodation. Similar code language has already been adopted in Portland, Salem, Beaverton, Bend, Lake Oswego, and Multnomah and Benton Counties, as well as in more than 70 other cities, counties and states across the country.

Event Date: Monday, 3/14/2005
