Above are the original changes that were proposed to DART’s nondiscrimination policy back in May. The screen grab is taken directly from a slideshow presented by Kriss Ann Gamez, DART’s director of diversity and EEO. Gamez presented the slideshow on May 11 to the DART board’s Economic Opportunity and Diversity Committee, which uanimously approved the proposed changes. After the jump, I’ve reposted the proposed policy that was approved this week by the DART Board’s committee-of-the-whole. While only one word has been added to the sentence in question, the trans protections — as well as those that have been in place for sexual orientation since 1995 — have effectively been gutted. More on all this in Friday’s Voice.
