A change.org petition urges the Wichita Falls City Council to declare June Pride Diversity month.
And diversity means everyone. Here are the points the petition makes:
- Wichita Falls is home to people of all faiths who offered prayers for rain in the midst of drought.
- Wichita Falls is home to people of all political persuasions who seek to better our city, county, state, and country.
- Wichita Falls is home to families of all kinds – two-parent households, single-parent households, gay and straight and transgender, extended family supporting, young and not-so-young – bringing a strong and educated generation of leaders to the forefront of world leadership.
- Wichita Falls is home to people of all racial and ethnic backgrounds who support the success of our economy and who work hard to better our community.
The next city council meeting is June 14. At the time of this writing, there were less than 100 signatures. If the number of signatures grows, we’ll see if the council responds to the petitioners.
