Fayetteville City Council members passed a controversial anti-discrimination ordinance early Wednesday morning following nearly 10 hours of public discussion and debate that began Tuesday evening inside City Hall. The new law means landlords and business owners could be investigated and prosecuted for unjustly evicting or firing someone because of their sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic background, marital status or veteran status.
But in Arkansas there are no state-level non-discrimination laws that cover the otherincluding sexual orientation and gender identity.
Aldermen Justin Tennant and Martin Schoppmeyer voted against the proposal. During the meeting, aldermen amended the ordinance — at the request of Petty — to exempt all tax-exempt properties or places of worship owned by a church from being included.

That move, Petty said, was to appease religious groups who earlier this month said they should not have to open their places of worship to people of different beliefs. Alderman Tennant proposed sending the anti-discrimination decision to the public for a vote in the upcoming general election. He said it would allow all residents to help make the decision, and would likely be quicker — and cheaper — than if the public were to initiate its own vote to overturn the ordinance.
Tennant said residents would only have until about the end of the month to submit over 4, atures needed to place the item on the Nov. Of the 54 Fayetteville residents who spoke about the proposed amendment, 18 people said they would like a public vote. The other 36 residents said they wanted the City Council to make the decision. The City Council chambers were full within moments of the City Clerk opening the doors.
Laurent Sacharoff, a professor at the University of Arkansas School of Law, said a public vote would be a mistake.

Sacharoff said minorities face terrible odds when faced with discrimination, and the burden should be on the public to vote for discrimination. City Attorney Kit Williams said state laws already exist that address people attempting to enter the wrong bathroom for any unlawful purpose — indecent exposure and disorderly conduct.
Both, he said, are state statutes that trump all local laws. Others who were against the ordinance said that discrimination is not a problem in Fayetteville, and that the city is already a fair-minded place. Nearly 20 people who spoke at the meeting recounted personal stories where they felt discriminated against in businesses around Fayetteville.

One man said he once lost his job in Fayetteville just because he was gay. Another said he has been afraid that landlords would find out he and his partner are gay and would stop renting to them. With the City Council chambers at maximum capacity, residents were only allowed inside one by one as another exited the room.
Lowell Grisham, Rector of St. Terry Turpin, a former practicing attorney and current COO at Fayetteville-based company Acumen Brands, said he was against the ordinance for several reasons. Turpin said he was concerned that a disgruntled employee who was fired for a good reason might retaliate and file a complaint against his company.
Turpin warned aldermen that if the ordinance is passed, it will hurt businesses in Fayetteville, and will cause other companies to think twice before moving to town. Other residents pointed to a recently released study by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation which found that 91 percent of Fortune companies have implemented policies which prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, and 61 percent have protections in place on the basis of gender identity.
After public comment ended, 73 Fayetteville residents had spoken about the ordinance. Of the 14 non-Fayetteville residents who spoke, only one was in favor of the ordinance.
Before the vote, Alderman Tennant said he knows discrimination exists and that he believes in the spirit of the ordinance. But, he said he felt it was irresponsible to enact an ordinance without knowing all the details involved with enforcement. Tennant suggested the Council instead form a Civil Rights Commission made up of residents and aldermen who could investigate claims of discrimination.
The meeting was the longest in the history of the Fayetteville City Council, lasting until a. It is our responsibility as elected officials to look out for those minorities who cannot fight for themselves.
Fayetteville Mayor Lioneld Jordan closed out the discussion with strong comments in favor of the ordinance. Jordan said during the downturn, the city enacted a business program and an anti-solicitation program without adding any new jobs to the payroll. But you know what? I see a brighter day. I see a day when everyone is judged by their character and not by a label or a tag.
