Berea Group Forsees Less Discrimination

Based on its population and the experience of larger cities, Berea could expect one complaint about sexual orientation or gender identity every two years if it were to create a human rights commission including those categories as protected classes, a group contended at Tuesday's city council meeting. Bereans for Fairness, a group that supports the inclusion of gay and transgender as protected categories, presented that information in a "fiscal impact statement" to the council.
