TEP rallies for equal rights

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Members of the Tennessee Equality Project rallied Sunday in support of a non-discrimination ordinance that will go before the Memphis City Council Tuesday afternoon.

The ordinance would prevent work place and hiring discrimination based on age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.

Sunday's rally outside the National Civil Rights Museum featured city workers and clergy members as speakers.

TEP is encouraging all to come to the Memphis City council meeting Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. in support of the measure, and wear purple or equal protection for all t-shirts. Council is scheduled to take up a second and final reading of a proposal to extend gay rights during their Tuesday session.
