If you have been paying any attention at all to FHA Action lately, you know that the “storm on our radar” has had to do with the Sioux Falls City Council and the agenda of some thereon to implement invasive and far-reaching policies regarding sexual orientation and gender identity. We dodged a bullet (pardon the mixed metaphor) on HRO CH98, but only barely. That extensive ordinance has been withdrawn but will likely return. Now, we are tracking an amendment to another Sioux Falls City Ordinance that would include the same type of ‘gender identity’ protection in employment by the city. This is an amendment to HRO Ch 39.
If you live, shop, worship, or do business in Sioux Falls, you have a voice on this issue. Please contact the following City Council Members and Mayor Huether, urging them to OPPOSE the amendment to HRO Ch 39. Be brief, respectful, and factual in your message.
Here are some immediate action steps for you.
- We can all BE VIGILANT in PRAYER.
- Attend the Council meeting on June 14. Mark your calendar. Be there. This City Council meeting will take place at 7:00 p.m. at the Carnegie Town Hall, 235 West Tenth Street, Sioux Falls.
- Contact the Mayor and the Council members – OPPOSE the amendment to HRO Chapter 39
- Alert your friends.
