I am proud and excited to announce that Dayton has received a top score of 100 on the 2016 Human Rights Campaign’s Municipal Equality Index! Dayton is one of just 3 cities in Ohio and 60 nationwide to earn a perfect score. Dayton is also just one of 37 cities to be named an All-Star City, representing a high score in a state lacking supportive state-level laws.
The Municipal Equality Index is based upon a set of 44 criteria that fall into five broad categories: non-discrimination laws, municipal employment policies, inclusiveness of city services, law enforcement and municipal leadership.
I am so proud of what this award represents. Dayton is truly moving forward as an open, progressive and welcoming place.
