Presentation on Civil Rights and Municipal Equality Index
Obtain feedback and input from Council on the Flagstaff Nondiscrimination Ordinance and the 2022 Municipal Equality Index issued by the Human Rights Campaign.
Each year, the Human Rights Campaign issues a scorecard that evaluates the inclusivity of municipal laws, policies & services in hundreds of cities across the United States on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. The scores detailed in the attached PowerPoint represent the most updated scorecard for the City of Flagstaff. City staff has identified possible actions that the City could take to improve its score on several metrics.
City Staff is requesting input from Council on the current state of institutional inclusivity within the City as well as direction on actions the City can take to further inclusivity and improve its score on the annual Municipal Equality Index Scorecard. Any direction that is received will be used by City staff to guide their work throughout the year on this topic.
The City of Flagstaff once again received an 88/100 on the scorecard. This is the same score as last year, though there were areas in which the City received new points and areas in which the City lost points from the 2021 Scorecard.
