The city’s LGBT Task Force celebrated Pride at City Hall today and gave three Spirit of Equality awards.
Councilman Jerry Allen was given the Leadership Award. Allen guided the city council’s recent equality resolution through committee.
Councilmen Scott Griggs and Philip Kingston won the Ally Award. Both have worked closely with the LGBT community during their terms in office.
The Rev. Jim Mitulski accepted the Community Award for Cathedral of Hope. Task Force member Cd Kirven said the church stepped up when support was needed to help pass the resolution.
The resolution instructs city offices to make sure policies are equal and inclusive of everyone including the LGBT community.
