Anti-Discrimination Resolution Introduced in Milwaukee County
Worried about issues of discrimination in a Trump administration, around 100 people showed their support for a resolution that opposes all discrimination in Milwaukee County.
The anti-discrimination or safe sanctuary resolution was introduced to by Milwaukee Supervisor Marina Dimitrijevic and first heard in Wednesday morning's Health and Human Needs Committee.
Many of those who support the resolution gathered for a rally before the meeting to sing, and speak about how important potential legislation could me.
Dimitrijevic says she wrote the resolution to make sure everyone in Milwaukee County feels welcome and has equal rights.
The resolution highlights protected rights for documented and illegal immigrants, women, LGBTQ+, and those with religious backgrounds.
While the majority of those in attendance support the resolution, some say they don't think the resolution is the right thing to do.
